First Friday Art Tours

“Started in April of 2004 the First Friday Art Walk was started by founders of the Santa Cruz Institute of Contemporary Arts Chip and Kirby as a self guide art walk to the various local art venues that  regularly showed the work of local artists.  This April 3rd marks the 5th year of year round, monthly art tours that have included guided walking tours as well as bus tours of all the latest art  happenings in Santa Cruz. First Friday has grown from a handful of eager participants each month as well as a handful of participating venues … to hundreds of regular art goers and on average 30 art venues each month opening their doors to the public.  The First Friday Art Tour covers art venues from the Tannery to the wharf, from the westside to the eastside as well as the Sesnon Gallery at UCSC.”  Next tour is May 1st.
