Meet the People and business behind the downtown art walk
vtxArt Walk is a growing community program
The VTX Art Walk 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 VTX Art Walk will engage, educate, and inform attendees through connecting art lovers and enthusiasts to galleries, artists, and local businesses. The VTX Art Walk is a collaborative initiative between the Victoria Main Street Program, Crossroads Art House, and the Victoria Fine Arts Association. 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 Downtown VTX Art Walk 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!
After 11 Successful Art Walks, we’ve grown to an average of 1,500-5,000 attendees, 50+ Artists, and a growing list of 20+ downtown businesses collaborating with the art walk coordinators.
