Art District Programs

From our summer Art on Film series to the Art of Brunch, the Art District Board has developed a suite of entirely free creative and cultural programming in the neighborhood making art accessible to all.

Our Third Friday Collectors' Nights are designed for art collectors. Akin to the First Friday Art Walk, dozens of galleries keep their doors open late for this year-round event.

However, you'll find less crowds and more serious art buyers—and often the opportunity to meet the artists. Come down for opening receptions, artists talks, and a perfect date night.

The Art District comes alive as thousands descend upon the Santa Fe Drive, rain or shine, for the First Friday Art Walks every month from 5:30-9:30 p.m.

View art from hundreds of artists in galleries, studios, co-ops, upstairs, downstairs, in alleys, on the street—everywhere! A free shuttle will take you around the District and you'll often find food trucks on 7th and 9th Avenues.
