Downtown Miami's First Friday Art Walk is giving the Wynwood Art Walk a run for its money, though. Held every month in downtown Miami on the first Friday of the month, the First Friday Art Walk not only occurs a week before the Wynwood one, but it naturally draws a huge after-work crowd that is looking to get their weekend started off the moment their work week has ended.

More than 150 artists encompassing all styles of art media are featured. Film screenings, art talks, receptions, live music and, of course, food trucks accompany the event. Some of the more prominent venues include McCormick Place, Artisan Lounge and the SeaFair MegaYacht.
Although different sponsors and organizations may be involved from month to month, notable Miami art icons such as MDC Museum of Art, Dimensions Variable, TM Sisters, Sculptures in the Park at Bayfront, Art in Public Places and Bas Fisher Invitational are expected to be regulars.
Miami's First Friday Art Walk is to free attend and open to art lovers of all ages!
