The 2009 dates are April 3, May 1, June 5, August 7, September 4, and October 2. First Friday Art Walk is a free, self-guided tour to Marietta’s eclectic art scene. Art galleries, museums, and merchants host artists within their stores and are open 6:00 pm-9:00 pm.

The Alley will be in the Courtyard and Alley by the Marietta Welcome Center&Visitors Bureau, 4 Depot Street, and behind Cool Beans. You can browse and purchase that special piece of art.

Maps of the venues are available at each participating merchant, the Marietta Welcome Center&Visitors Bureau, and online at At each Art Walk stop, you’ll have your map stamped. After you finish the Walk, you can turn your completed map (with 10 locations stamped) into the Art Walk Headquarters – the dk Gallery, 25 West Park Square – for a free gift bag.
