How To Apply

The deadline to apply for an Art Walk is the first Friday of the month, one month prior to the Art Walk for which you would like to be considered (For example, if you would like to attend the February Art Walk, you must apply no later than the first Friday in January.) Applications are reviewed twice per month and approved for the calendar year.

The First Wednesday Art Walk is a monthly event produced by Downtown Vision, Inc. (DVI), the Downtown Improvement District, to bring people to the cultural and historical center of the city and showcase Jacksonville’s deep and energetic pool of creative talent.

Open to visual and performing artists, Art Walk is on the first Wednesday of every month from 5 – 9 p.m., rain or shine. More than 35 Art Walk venues stretch across Downtown Jacksonville’s core and include Hemming Park, galleries, museums, cultural and educational venues, restaurants and bars, Downtown businesses and more.

The First Wednesday Art Walk is a great way to meet fellow artists, buy and appreciate their work, and be part of the rapidly growing art scene in Jacksonville. We estimate that, on average, 5,000 art enthusiasts attend each month to see more than 100 artists exhibiting at Art Walk.
