September First Friday Artwalk

First FridayEvery First Friday of the month is an event that many communities across the nation celebrate.  In Lincoln's Art Community, it allows a chance for local art galleries and establishments to open their doors to the public and have open house events where the public can come and see what is new in the art world.  Here on the Lincoln Arts Council website, we offer a complete guide to all of open houses for Lincoln's First Friday Art Walk.  If you know of an event that is happening, that is not listed in our guide, please feel free to email "Events" at and we will be sure to post it as soon as possible.

Support our local art scene and see what's new in the world of the arts!  Happy First Friday!
