Galveston ArtWalk®

For over 25 years, the Galveston Art Center has produced ArtWalk on Saturday nightsfrom 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 "other walls"—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.

2015 ArtWalk Dates:

  • January 17
  • Febuary 28
  • April 18
  • May 30
  • July 11
  • August 22
  • October 10

Galveston Arts Center is proud to continue a partnership with Del Papa Distributing. Each ArtWalk, selected locations will offer a sampling of a particular artisanal beer.
