Downtown Fullerton Art Walk
The incredibly popular Downtown Fullerton Art Walk happens on the first Friday of every month, rain or shine, from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM, all year long. It’s all ages and it’s free! It brings hordes of art lovers to the streets of Downtown Fullerton and to the various venues hosting art shows for the event. With Art Walk maps provided at each venue, it is a self-guided tour of exhibits around town where art buyers and enthusiasts can often meet the artists at their respective showcases.
The Downtown Fullerton Art Walk hopes to make the public aware of the diversity and quality of art in this growing center for the arts. Over recent years the artist community in Fullerton has expanded rapidly, spurred by the number of visitors to the city and also by the increased number of art venues. The Downtown Fullerton Art Walk is all about building relationships between arts organizations, downtown business, and the public, and has emerged as an integral part of Fullerton’s culture. It is developed and promoted by the downtown art community and retailers who independently curate their own shows. At its core, the Downtown Fullerton Art Walk is a coalition of galleries and businesses
whose goal is to promote the arts and to build a tight-knit community.
