For over 25 years the Galveston Arts Center has organized and produced ArtWalk approximately every six to eight weeks on Saturday nights in the heart of the historic district. The GAC encourages a working relationship with both the non-profit and commercial art spaces in the city by coordinating exhibition opening nights. Not a street festival, ArtWalk takes place in existing commercial galleries, non-profit arts spaces and what are called "other walls" (restaurants and retail stores, for example). Now spreading to other parts of the island, each exhibits art and welcomes viewers with open doors, later hours and refreshments.
One of the Galveston Arts Center's largest programs, the event attractions between 1,000 to 3,000 visitors per evening, promotes visual art and artists, offers alternative places to see and learn about art and hopes to bring newcomers, as well as welcome return visitors to the art community on the island.
