First Saturday Art Crawl Downtown


At The Arts Company, First Saturdays are all about welcoming guests and visitors to see new artwork, have conversations with artists, and browse through new and vintage art books.  For us, it’s a way to visit with friends and guests during an exciting and festive evening in downtown Nashville, admission free.  It’s all about welcoming the community in to see what’s new and fresh in the world of art.


First Saturday Art Crawl, presented by 5th Avenue of the Arts, is a monthly visual arts event occurring in the historic entertainment district of downtown Nashville. On the first Saturday of every month, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., an alliance of art galleries and museums collectively invite the public to explore the vibrant Nashville downtown art scene. More than 20 art venues participate. Presenting local and world-renowned artists and artwork, gallery participants offer rare opportunities to meet and have conversations with the artists and to view diverse exhibitions featuring every genre of art. Admission free, First Saturday Art Crawl is a festive atmosphere with participating venues from 5th Avenue of the Arts to the historic Arcade to 8th Avenue to Broadway – all welcoming the community to experience Downtown Nashville as a hub for art.  First Saturday Art Crawl welcomes approximately 1,000+ attendees each month. Click here for the shuttle map.
