  • First Wednesday Art Walk

    Produced by Downtown Vision, Inc. (DVI), Art Walk is on the first Wednesday of every month from 5 – 9 p.m., rain or shine. More than 60 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, Florida. We estimate that, on average, 8,000 art enthusiasts attend each month to see more than 250 artists exhibiting at Art Walk. Want to get in touch? Reach out to Events Manager Alexandra Abreu-Figueroa at or call 904-634-0303, ext. 222.
