Brevard Fourth Friday Gallery Walks: 2006-2023
Brevard 4th Friday Gallery Walks began in May 2006 when a group of artists and gallery owners of a decided that Brevard needed a way to celebrate local artists and draw visitors to the downtown galleries. The monthly events (May through December) grew to include art spots, restaurants, and other shops, in addition to the galleries. This was, and is, a wonderful way to highlight our vibrant art community.
