Second Saturday Artwalk was founded by S.M.A.R.T. Executive Director Andy Benavides in 1996. The art walk has grown from serving 1,000 people to over 8,000 people annually. The S.M.A.R.T. facility contains 10 art studios each run by a professional artist. Along with S.M.A.R.T. projectspace, each artist opens their space for the evening, creating a night full of art, music, food, fashion and community. This event creates a monthly opportunity for resident artists to share and sell their work. Additionally S.M.A.R.T. holds quarterly artist talks, another opportunity for the community to participate in q & a with the current artist on exhibit.
Second Saturday is a family friendly monthly Artwalk in Southtown The Arts District's Lone Star neighborhood.
