ArtWalk Longview is a free, self-guided tour of downtown business venues exhibiting and selling art. This year's dates are April 1, July 1, October 7, and December 9.
The quarterly event has been selected the flagship event of the new ARTS!Longview Cultural District, which receives funding from the Texas Commission on the Arts. Sorey & Gilliland, LLP also sponsors the event.
ArtWalk was initially created with the goal of attracting people to downtown Longview to enjoy the museums, restaurants, and businesses that are open and exhibiting artists. The event has grown over the years and has added food trucks and street musicians.
The success of each ArtWalk event depends on the participation of businesses to find artists to host and invite guests to attend. Invitations are primarily through social media and word of mouth.
ArtWalk Longview provides a map of participants prior to each event. For information visit online at www.artwalklongview.com or follow on Facebook or Instagram.
