Today from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. is the first Downtown Tyler ArtWalk of 2012. There will be nearly 20 artists exhibiting their work inside and outside of various downtown businesses. The weather should be perfect for an evening stroll around the downtown square to view the art. There will even be music to enjoy along your walk!

This event will happen four times this year. The other dates are June 14, September 13, and December 13.

Be sure to make your first stop the Gallery Main Street at 110 W. Erwin St., to pick up the ArtWalk map so you can make the most out of this free event.

The Downtown Tyler Art Walk is a collaborative effort of the City of Tyler Main Street Department, Gallery Main Street and the Downtown Tyler Arts Coalition. All profits from art demonstrations will be donated in support of ArtWalk.
