ArtBeat on Main Street to Close

By   /  December 29, 2016  /  4 Comments


Sad news.  The building is in escrow and the new owner wants to gut the building and turn it into a restaurant.  Having ArtBeat in downtown Vista is important and we hope we can find a new location in Historical Vista.  We heard a rumor tonight that they may go into the Dura Paint location.

    Art Beat is important to Vista and the region! How about the old hardware location on S. SANTA FE? Any body check that site’s availability?

  2. Pamela Becraft says:

    Since when are rumors fit news for publication?
    I’m sitting here at Artbeat, and am an employee…so, where did you hear this rumor?

  3. Judy Pantazo says:

    Very sad news. Such a vibrant part of the downtown area.

  4. Yes, Art Beat needs to stay in Vista.
    Kait Matthews has done a tremendous job pulling together this vibrant venue for art!
    There are spaces available downtown – like the former Gil’s Feed that was reconfigured when the Paseo traffic circle was put in, and then a brewery couldn’t take it because the water line was too small.

    Keep us informed!
