Embracing the creative movement that has been happening in West Dallas, ART WALK WEST will highlight these activities with a designated day for the community to explore. Artists that have moved into West Dallas will open their studios to share their practice and show the energy that they are bringing to the neighborhood. Galleries and other creative retail will have exhibitions on display for visitors to peruse and enjoy. Art Walk West has also engaged a selection of artists to create temporary exhibitions and pop-up retail shops in the Trinity Groves and West Dallas areas.
West Dallas has also become a destination for dynamic public street art and murals. ART WALK WEST will have maps available highlighting these destinations along with the participating galleries and studios so that visitors may take self-guided tours. Maps and collateral for ART WALK WEST will be available in September.
