The art world has always been an important part of the Laguna Beach culture, and First Thursdays Art Walk celebrates that connection year round.  Held the first Thursday of every month from 6pm to 9pm, Art Walk is an educational and fun event that is free to the public.  Its mission is to promote our community as a year-round destination and community of fine art galleries.  It also strives to provide a high-quality educational experience for art students through its annual Mentoring Program with the Laguna College of Art + Design.

About Art Walk

First Thursdays Art Walk has been a Laguna Beach institution since 1998.  It’s a membership organization that is sponsored by member galleries, local arts organizations, lodging establishments and the City of Laguna Beach.

Participating in Art Walk couldn’t be easier.  The member galleries offer free trolley service to all Art Walk guests.  Each trolley features a knowledgeable guide who is ready and eager to answer all your questions.  The trolleys run from 6pm to 9pm and operate on a loop, stopping at more than 10 locations throughout town, making access to all the galleries a cinch.

Participating Galleries

Laguna Beach has a thriving arts community, and dozens of galleries throughout town participate in this monthly event.  Art in a wide range of mediums is on display each month, featuring everything from plein-air works by award-winning Laguna artists to abstract and figurative mixed media paintings to museum quality glass works.  Here’s a comprehensive list of all the galleries that are currently participating.
