Atrium, oh Atrium…special considerations
This year at Tiki Oasis, we are once again bringing artists outside to enjoy the exotic atmosphere of the Atrium with it’s gorgeous Tiki carvings, water features and foliage! Seeing as we’ll be in this lush outdoor locale, consider bringing:
-an easel or clipboard (we will not have as many tables as usual)
-a parasol or umbrella
Hotel site plan…
Click here for a site map of the hotel to help you locate the Atrium. It’s on the ground floor and in the north section of the hotel tower. Note: You do not need a Tiki Oasis wristband to get to us ;)
And, in case you were wondering, the answer is yes, you can still enjoy cocktails in the Atrium – you’ll just need to buy them at Islands, the hotel bar/lounge, or from the patio adjacent to the Lagoon Ballroom.
ABOUT TIKI OASIS:
Tiki Oasis is “the largest and longest running Tiki Event on planet earth.” Four scrumptious days packed with good times, fun, shopping, symposiums, music and entertainment celebrating everything Tiki. This year’s theme at Tiki Oasis is “YESTERDAY’S FUTURE, TODAY!” celebrating the Space Age. Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School San Diego is honored to be part of this incredible event. (Find out all about Tiki Oasis here.)
Please note: There is much to see at Tiki Oasis during the day (for free too!) so come early and enjoy the classic car show, Tiki vendors, the Tiki Oasis Art Show and more before the Dr. Sketchy’s session. You’d need to buy a Tiki Oasis evening pass to enjoy any of the festivities and entertainment that happen after 5pm by the pool. The evening passes sell out so get them while you can!
(P.S. And, as always, mark your calendars for next month’s session: Saturday September 19. Remember: you don’t have to wait for one of our public sessions – you can always book your very own session. Find out more here.)
