The First Wednesday Art Walk is a monthly event produced by Downtown Vision, Inc. (DVI). For 11 years and counting, the First Wednesday Art Walk is an art extravaganza for the entire community. Voted “Best Festival/Art Walk” in 2015 by Jacksonville Magazine, this is the place to get your art fix. Rain or shine, expect this event to carry on regardless. Jacksonville Downtown Art Walk occurs on the first Wednesday of every month from 5—9 PM.

 

The Art Walk themes change each month. For January, it is New Year, New Hobby. Please keep in mind that the themes are subject to change at any given moment.

 

Over 50 Art Walk venues are featured along Downtown Jacksonville’s core, including Hemming Park, galleries, museums, cultural and educational venues, restaurants and bars, Downtown businesses and more. This art walk spans more than 15 blocks of Jacksonville’s Downtown.

 

Come down to the First Wednesday Art Walk to meet fellow artists and buy and appreciate their work. It is a great way to be a part of the rapidly growing art scene in the Jacksonville area. It is estimated that over 8,000 art enthusiasts attend each month to see more than 100 artists exhibiting their work on the Art Walk.

 

View the dozens of artists in Hemming Park, along with Hemming Park street performers and live music. If you want to be a part of the fun and exhibit your work, there is a limited number of performing artists for Hemming Park each month. There are more than 50 indoor venues that participate each month to display your work or to perform.
