The Scottsdale Gallery Association hosts the nation’s oldest ArtWalk — 45 years and counting! — every Thursday evening from 7 to 10 p.m., with eight specially themed Gold Palette ArtWalks occurring throughout the year that offer guests refreshments, entertainment, specialty exhibits and more aligned with each theme. The SGA ArtWalk brings together the finest art in Scottsdale including 28 galleries and two museums — Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West.
The Thursday night art walk series is currently on hold in light of COVID-19 but will resume this summer on a date to be determined.
