Our Next Event
Thursday, March 4, 2021 | 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.
The Scottsdale Gallery Association is pleased to present the Native Spirit Gold Palette ArtWalk on Thursday, March 4 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Through this themed ArtWalk, the Association and local art galleries with the Scottsdale Arts District, which resides along Main Street from Scottsdale Road to Goldwater Boulevard and north of Indian School on Marshall Way to 5th Avenue, recognize and honor Scottsdale’s rich Native culture and heritage through art and entertainment.
“We are proud to be part of a community with such a vibrant and inclusive Native culture and history,” says Scottsdale Gallery Association President French Thompson. “Our annual Native Spirit ArtWalk is an opportunity to honor and showcase Scottsdale’s native heritage and share some interactive education about our Native artists.”
In addition to highlighting Native artists at many of the participating galleries, this Gold Palette ArtWalk features activities, entertainment and exhibits that showcase the best of the City’s “Native Spirit” including performances by traditional Native American hoop dancers.
The Scottsdale Gallery Association hosts the nation’s oldest ArtWalk — established in 1975 — every Thursday evening from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., with eight specially themed Gold Palette ArtWalks occurring throughout the year that offer guests refreshments, entertainment, specialty exhibits and more aligned with each theme. The SGA ArtWalk brings together the finest art in Scottsdale including 28 galleries and two museums — Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art and Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West.
