Premier Art Walkabout


On September 8th at 5 p.m. art lovers enjoyed a three hour long immersion in Fayetteville’s vibrant downtown arts' scene for the first ever Art Walkabout.

This quarterly event seeks to showcase Fayetteville’s blooming art scene.

 Participants used a Walkabout Passport as their map to all the participating galleries and venues. Stops along the self-guided crawl included an interactive and unique experience at each gallery.

Participants received stamps in their passports to document their journey. Those with a collection of 3 or more stamps were entered in a drawing for chances at prizes.
