First Saturday Art Crawl in Nashville!

If you are a lover of art, make sure you mark your calendar for the first Saturday of every month, when art galleries throughout downtown Nashville host receptions and art openings. Over a thousand people attend this extremely popular event every month. Presenting local and world-renowned artists and artwork, the galleries offer rare opportunities to view diverse exhibitions, featuring every genre of art. With free admission, the First Saturday Art Crawl is a festive atmosphere with participating venues located along Fifth Avenue of the Arts and in the Historic Arcade, all of which welcome the community to experience downtown Nashville as a center for art.  Most of the galleries that participate also serve free wine and other refreshments. Exhibits change out each month and additional galleries are often added to the list. For updates, be sure to subscribe to Downtown Details. View a list of all of the art galleries located downtown and watch for more galleries to open soon! This growing arts community is one of downtown’s treasures. The gallery crawl is a great free night on the town!
