There are art exhibits that mostly feature local artists. That's great as the major art museums of the city cover more established artists from the U.S. And the rest of the world. This area is also home to a number of excellent restaurants and bars....More

Just off of the Riverwalk and near to Southtown, this former industrial area is blossoming as an arts place and a mecca for hip restaurants. Just follow the signs on the Riverwalk and head up to an exhibit or two and a good meal.

Used to be a great spot for emerging arts; now it's gentrified to point that there are very few galleries/studios but rather brew pubs, juice bars and food spots. We stopped in on a Saturday. One space, Cinnabar, was open; everything that was arts space...More

I love this place. There's always something interesting going on here! Went to a Mystic Festival last month on a Sunday that had all sorts of different vendors. Good food, drink and art, what more could you ask for?!!
