A continuous tradition for 25 years and counting, galleries stay open late for Gallery Walk on the first Friday of each month to host openings of new exhibits by local, regional, national and international artists. From contemporary to traditional art, the diverse offerings in this arts and cultural scene place Hot Springs at No. 4 among the 100 Best Art Towns in America. The Hot Springs Arts District is a unique blending of natural beauty surrounded by a National Historic District. The city of Hot Springs nurtures talented artists from all genres, drawing visitors from around the world and enriching our community with festivals, poetry, art exhibits, concerts and one of the longest running Documentary Film Festivals.
