What Is the History of First Friday Art?

First Friday Art was originally called First Friday Art Walk. In January 2014, the ‘walk’ was dropped from the name of the event because it had grown too large to ‘walk.’ The event was started in the late 1990s by a group of local artists and curators who came together with a desire to create a gathering or “happening” where they could share their works with each other and the city in a new and exciting way. CLICK HERE…to read the full history of First Friday Art Walk.
