Our purpose is to spark the vibrancy of the arts by organizing art experiences in Victoria, Texas!
The Downtown Victoria Art Walk (DVAW) is an independent arts organization and community of artists working to elevate Victoria’s emerging creative economy. Our platform aims to support local artists, micro-businesses and local brick and mortar establishments!
The Downtown Victoria Art Walk (DVAW) is a self-guided art experience of local galleries, artist studios, local businesses, and cultural events that started (originally in June 2021) along the Downtown and Main Street area in Victoria, TX. The DVAW will engage, educate, and inform attendees through connecting art lovers and enthusiasts to galleries, artists, and local businesses. The DVAW is a collaborative initiative between the Victoria Main Street Program, Crossroads Art House, and the Victoria Art League. Downtown locations will exhibit local art along with the artists, a reception, and refreshments. Attendees will be able to enjoy live music, shopping, dining, and live dancing. On-site trolley shuttle services will take attendees to each venue, so they can take in all the incredible art without the hassle! This event occurs four times throughout the year as it is a quarterly event!
At our first DVAW event in June 2021, over 16 local businesses and over 35 artists contributed to the success of the event. Additionally, the event drew the presence of 500 + attendees from around the Crossroads!
