Three Fridays every summer in downtown Lafayette the streets are transformed with local art and musicians as patrons enjoy an evening stroll. During each Gallery Walk, the local arts community collaborate with downtown businesses to showcase the arts culture in Greater Lafayette.
Attendees experience locally-created works of art. A way to connect with the arts and businesses, the Gallery Walk support the “shop local” initiative. The event encourages guests to stop into participating businesses and build relationships with artists. Each business on the Gallery Walk features artwork, music and the occasional complimentary beverage or hors d’oeuvres.
Celebrating its 15th anniversary, the Gallery Walk is presented by Tippecanoe Arts Federation which provides education opportunities in the visual, performing and literary arts, outreach programs for both underserved communities and at-risk youth, and funding for capital and operational expenses to fellow arts organizations region-wide.
The first Gallery Walk is this coming Friday, May 17th from 6-9pm.
