CANCELED: First Wednesday Art Walk: eARTh DAY

Downtown Vision has proudly hosted the First Wednesday Art Walk monthly since 2003. The health and safety of our community is our highest priority. At the recommendation of the City of Jacksonville and the CDC, we have canceled our April 1st event as a precaution against the spread of COVID-19. As of now, our May event is still on the schedule. We are rigorously following the updates from the city and federal government and will adapt as needed to keep our event as safe as possible.

About Art Walk

The First Wednesday Art Walk is a monthly event produced by Downtown Vision, Inc. (DVI), the Business 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.
