Sponsored by the Cedar City Arts Council, the Cedar City Art Walk features collaborations between artists and local businesses and galleries located in or near downtown Cedar City, including the new Southern Utah Museum of Art.

During the Final Friday Art Walks, the community is encouraged to enjoy and support the local arts festivities Cedar City has to offer by visiting the eight Art Walk locations.

Artisans Art Gallery has scheduled live music featuring the jazz gypsy ensemble Wilhelm. Additionally, light refreshments will be served. Around the corner on 100 West is the new gallery called Art Works, which will also be participating in the Art Walk.

The plaza of the new Southern Utah Museum of Art will have live music and Don Carter doing a monotype demonstration.

Sagebrush Fiber Artisans are set for the area in front of the Southern Utah University Alumni House, and art exhibits will also be open at The Grind, Main Street Books, Iron Gate Winery and the Stone Path Massage and Energy Center. Several artists will be doing art demonstrations on Center Street and 100 West under the trees.

The Final Friday Art Walks are deliberately scheduled right before the Utah Shakespeare Festival performances, giving participants an opportunity for an exceptionally diverse arts and culture experience this summer. The 2016 Final Friday events are free, and the public is encouraged to attend.

Projects and activities of the Cedar City Arts Council are supported in part by the Utah Division of Arts & Museums, the State of Utah, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Cedar City RAP (Recreation, Arts, & Parks) Tax and the Cedar City-Brian Head Tourism Bureau.
