In 1994, Artlink began promoting the monthly First Fridays art walk, which has grown to become one of the largest monthly art walks in the United States. With many venues open free to the public each month, First Fridays has succeeded in bringing people back to downtown Phoenix. The event sees anywhere from 14-20,000 visitors monthly and grows each year. Third Fridays came years later, and is sometimes referred to as “Gallery Night,” due to the number of exhibition openings that take place.
Please continue to support the arts and community on First Fridays and every day of the year. Please visit our arts and culture calendar to find a current schedule of exhibitions and events for First & Third Friday and all the days in between or click on the graphic below to view the map.
