A monthly art-focused open house in the village

Grab your walking shoes and get ready for an evening of art, wine, and merrymaking at this monthly event. Held from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the first Friday of every month, this art extravaganza prompts La Jolla art galleries to open their doors and invite pedestrians in for sips, snacks, live music, and even prizes. It’s the perfect way to get familiar with the local art scene, view some local and global masterpieces, and get your own creative juices flowing.

More than 16 local galleries participate in First Friday Art Walk, making it easy to hop from one to the next. Most are concentrated on or near Prospect Street, the commercial spine of the village.
