2018 4th Quarter Art Walk Dates

October 11, November 8, and December 13

The West Seattle Art Walk is a monthly art event that is held the second Thursday of each month 5pm to late year-round. The Art Walk is hosted by the local West Seattle merchants who feature a wide range of art and showcase our vibrant artist community.

Spend the evening strolling and exploring West Seattle while enjoying art, music, extended happy hours, plus food and beverage specials. Our participating artists, businesses, and organizations are planning some great events to celebrate our vibrant art culture in West Seattle.

The West Seattle Art Walk is brought to you by the West Seattle Junction Association – a nonprofit 501(c)(3) and the West Seattle Arts Council.
