Second Saturday ArtWalk
Every month we bring five distinct Arts Districts together to welcome enthusiastic art lovers. ArtWalk has become a vibrant monthly celebration, where galleries and studios open their doors on a Saturday night and friends gather to explore new exhibits.
We provide funding, organization, marketing and free trolleys — supporting a regional economic strategy, bringing together area artists and arts lovers and providing access to the arts. (Up to 4,000 visits every month!)
Our annual winter benefit for the arts, a gala event that funds development opportunities and grants for artists, and a wide range of free arts festivals.
The MUSE Arts Awards

SHINE! Mural Festival
Every October the SHINE! Festival transforms our city streets into a curated, open-air museum showcasing large scale murals painted by local, national and world-renowned artists.
Our ArtBeat e-newsletter
reaches artists, arts supporters and creative organizations countywide with essential news and information, including opportunities for working artists, grants, job postings, calls for volunteers and more.
