First Friday Gallery Crawl

Various Times October 2, 2020 | Downtown Wichita

The First Friday Gallery Crawl (formerly Final Friday) is a unique opportunity for thousands of students, families and art lovers to engage with local art each month at unique locations in downtown Wichita and throughout the city. This grassroots event continues to thrive because of the collective vision and collaboration of galleries and artists.

As the name implies, First Friday happens the first Friday of each month. Hours vary between galleries, but most are open during the core hours of 7pm to 9pm. Most galleries use First Friday to unveil and debut new shows or as a closing reception. All venues are free and open to the public and several galleries incorporate artist demonstrations and/or live music. Not only does this event give guests the opportunity to view creative art space, it also is an excellent time to purchase one-of-a-kind artwork directly from artists.

Catch up on what to expect at First Friday, and help support local arts!
