Join the Art Walk

The West Seattle Art Walk is held the second Thursday of each month, 5pm to 8pm, year-round. The Art Walk is hosted by local West Seattle businesses 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. Each month, our participating artists, businesses, and organizations plan events that celebrate our diverse art culture in West Seattle.

Learn more about joining the West Seattle Art Walk in our latest Fact Sheet!

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.

For Artists

All the participating West Seattle merchants book their own artists. We recommend artists who wish to show at the Art Walk contact the businesses directly. Additionally, if you would like to submit your work to be considered for the featured artwork on the Art Walk walking map and poster, or would like to register as an available artist for merchants in our quarterly Artist Library, submit your information here.

Check out our Best Practices Guide for Artists (PDF) where we cover what to expect when participating in our Art Walk, from start to finish.

For Businesses Hosting Artists

You curate your artists and communicate directly to the WSAW 10 days prior to the Art Walk. If you’re looking for artists to show, email us and we’ll send you a document with available artists’ work samples and their contact info.

Quarterly registration includes your business being featured on the printed walking map, quarterly posters to hang in your location, walking maps to distribute to customers (once COVID restrictions are lifted), and promotion on our blog, social media, and community email newsletter.

For Restaurants and Drinking Establishments

No registration fees! You may either extend happy hour, offer a discount, special or offer during Art Walk. We will list your business on our website under Restaurant Specials, add you to our printed walking map, and promote your business on social media.

If, however, you want to host an artist, see the pricing and benefits above for “Businesses Hosting Artists.”
