Joni Miringoff: Co-Founder of ArtSplash

Joni has long been interested in the visual arts and community building in North County San Diego. At The Flower Fields in Carlsbad, she has created innovative programming that has helped turn a local landmark into a much-loved tourist destination. ArtSplash is a free, non-profit family event that promotes and benefits arts within the community. It encompasses extraordinary chalk art street paintings, live art demonstrations and performing artists. ArtSplash brings the community together to enjoy art and showcases North County's cultural image and resources, while benefiting arts education in the local schools.

What is your vision of the future of the Visual arts for San Diego?

"I believe arts education is the bedrock for the future of the visual arts in San Diego. By celebrating creativity and encouraging art in our homes and schools, we make our communities stronger. ArtSplash helps grow those bonds and that makes me excited about the future of the visual arts in North County."
