Looking for a different kind of Date Night or night out with friends? New to Bloomington and don’t know what to do? Stroll the Downtown Gallery Walk any time of the year!Eleven downtown galleries—conveniently located within walking distance of one another—invite you to discover a wealth of artwork on a self-guided tour any time of the year and also during six festive Friday night gallery walk receptions. Those nights feature special events and receptions to highlight new exhibits by artists who range from local to international.
Member galleries offer atmospheres ranging from sophisticated to funky and intimate to spacious. Some galleries focus on emerging artists while others showcase well-known and acclaimed artists. Many artists are local but others are regional, national or international.
Downtown Bloomington is home to galleries that offer a variety of art forms, from jewelry and pottery to sculpture and fiber art. Other galleries specialize in one medium, such as fine-art photography or paintings. The one thing that all eleven galleries have in common is a commitment to showcasing compelling art.
Whatever your taste in fine art and craft, you’re sure to find something you love during Downtown Gallery Walk—and you’ll have fun while you’re doing it!
