Every month, local artists and merchants join to support the city’s art scene with community events known as Art Walks. These Art Walks offer a free and easy opportunity to enjoy the arts in neighborhoods across the city, and by bringing the community together, they support both Seattle’s talented artists and small businesses. The First Thursday Art Walk in Pioneer Square (started in 1981) was in fact the first in the nation, and set the stage for over a dozen Art Walks now held regularly throughout the city.
