First Friday ArtWalk kicks off its new season in Old Colorado City on April 5, from 5-8 pm. First Friday ArtWalk is held monthly from April to December. This visual arts event is widely popular because of the commitment by the individual gallery owners and loyal art-goers. The generosity of local businesses and corporate sponsors also helps promote the program so that ArtWalkers can enjoy the event free of charge throughout the year.
ArtWalk is a self-guided visual arts walking tour featuring art galleries and open artist studios along Colorado Avenue between 23rd and 27th Streets. As many as 100 art pieces may be viewed for purchase in just one location in Old Colorado City’s art galleries. Colorado Springs’ largest concentration of galleries is found within three city blocks in Colorado Springs historic district.
