Paseo Arts District First Friday Gallery Walk
OKC's Paseo Arts District hosts an art party the first Friday of each month.
Every first Friday of the month, families, musicians and arts appreciators make their way to Oklahoma City’s Paseo Arts District to enjoy a feeling of creative community. The First Friday Gallery Walk typically draws up to 2,000 visitors for one night along the vibrant stretch of Spanish-revival architecture housing a high concentration of galleries along with trendy restaurants, coffee houses and other businesses in the state. “They come in snow; they come in ice; they come in the heat. It’s amazing,” says Jo Wise, executive director of the Paseo Arts Association. Whether seeking good food (Sauced on Paseo), good theater (Ghostlight Theatre Club) or a great gallery (take your pick, there are many!), pedestrians will find it. And it helps that most businesses stay open late and galleries hold receptions for new exhibits on the first Friday of each month. Go ahead explore. www.thepaseo.com
