Galveston ArtWalk®

For over 25 years, the Galveston Arts Center has produced ArtWalk on Saturday nights from 6-9 PM in the heart of the historic district. ArtWalk occurs approximately every six weeks. Not a street festival, ArtWalk takes place in existing art galleries (both commercial and non-profit) and alternative spaces such as cafes and shops that showcase rotating, original art exhibits. One of the Galveston Arts Center's largest programs, ArtWalk supports our arts community and promotes alternative places to see, buy and learn about art.

Each ArtWalk, participating galleries and businesses are listed in ads and on a tri-fold, glossy brochure with a map. Brochures are available at GAC and many downtown businesses. To participate, galleries and businesses can fill out an ArtWalk registration. Individual artists looking to display their work during ArtWalk may contact area galleries or other businesses to arrange for an exhibition. Please see the registration form for details.


Galveston Arts Center is proud to partner with Del Papa Distributing in Texas City. Each ArtWalk, select ArtWalk locations offer a sampling of artisanal craft beers.
