Salem Art Walk First Wednesday is a monthly event that is bringing culture and the arts to Downtown Salem. The Salem Art Walk happens the first Wednesday of the month, rain or shine, year round. The Art Walk runs from 5pm to 8pm and is a fun, free and family-friendly event to promote the artists of Salem and local businesses.

Prisms Gallery in the Reed Opera House hosts monthly themed group show: you'll get a chance to see a diverse selection of work from different artists there. Check out galleries in the Salem Arts Building and also many downtown businesses become an art gallery for the night and feature a wide variety of talented local artists. Musicians and street performers come out to entertain, and there are opportunites for Art Walk patrons to contribute to community art projects.

New businesses and artists join every month, so the art walk changes every regularly!
