First of all, a lot of people don't know that San Jose has a thriving art scene. It is evident by the 20+ venues that participate every month in the South First Fridays Art Walk along with lots of other events like the Midtown Beat Art Walk, Japantown Art Walk and the SubZERO Festival. It is quite extraordinary how many great venues that are out there supporting local art and putting on fantastic events. Recently San Jose has been featured in several publications including the Huffington Post article on 7 Off-The-Grid Travel Destinations Definitely Worth A Visit and the Forbes article Silicon Valley's Secret Subculture, Not So Secret Anymore
