Local galleries, retailers, and restaurants have the opportunity to kick off the Decatur Arts Festival
weekend with ArtWalk, a single-night, city-wide art experience that is free and open to the public.
Locals and out-of-town visitors stroll around town to see ArtSpots, exhibits hosted at local galleries, retailers, and restaurants and enjoy complimentary snacks and drinks.
How It Works
Participating businesses sign up to become ArtSpots and commit to hosting an exhibition of handcrafted work (2D, 3D, Wearable art, etc.) while providing light refreshments (wine, cheese, etc.). Participating businesses are responsible for securing an artist/artists and providing refreshments. Artists should be present to meet and greet during the event.
The Decatur Arts Alliance markets the event as part of the Decatur Arts Festival and provides promotional materials for businesses. The Decatur Arts Festival website, social media, and specialized app (developed specifically for the festival) will include information for each ArtSpot – business names, locations, and details about the featured artists. A free ArtWalk poster will be provided to each participating business.
A $30 tax-deductible donation to the Decatur Arts Alliance is required to participate, which helps to fund promotional materials. Join or renew your 2022 Corporate Membership to the Decatur Arts Alliance for $100 and the ArtWalk participation fee will be waived.
