Galveston ArtWalk

Galveson-Artwalk

 

For over 25 years, the Galveston Art Center has produced ArtWalk on Saturday nights from 6-9 PM in the heart of the historic district. Now spreading to other parts of the Island, ArtWalk occurs approximately every six weeks. Not a street festival, ArtWalk takes place in existing commercial galleries, non-profit arts spaces and what are called “other wall”—restaurants and retail stores. One of the Galveston Arts Center’s largest programs, ArtWalk promotes visual art and supports our arts-based community, offering alternative places to see and learn about art.

ArtWalk is held every six weeks, and is a great opportunity to get wined and dined with a great meal and great art. Save the dates for ArtWalk and make it a regular night out.
