Third Thursday ArtWalks are held every month throughout the year, offering attendee’s exposure from all over South Florida, live music in different locations, performance artists and community fun.

This monthly event has become a focal point of movement bringing cultural awareness to the Upper Keys.

As the Art District’s business partners remain open during these Thursday evenings, this indoor/outdoor street festival has become the talk of the Keys, drawing upwards of 1,000 people each month. The crowds stroll through the Art District, which spans one-half mile of the Old Highway between the historical 1935 Hurricane Monument and the iconic Green Turtle Inn and includes the intersecting street now known as Morada Way.

The artists and the gallery owners thrive with the involvement of the Morada Way Arts & Cultural District. And those who do not have studio or gallery space in the Art District use Art Walks, exhibits and classroom teaching to increase their exposure and their collectors.

MWACD is looking for talented artists to showcase their work during our Third Thursday Artwalk!

Due to the high volume of requests we receive to participate in this event, we ask that all artists first go through the selection process by submitting 3 or more digital images of artwork. These images must be of original art made by you, and they must reflect the pieces you plan to showcase at the time of the Artwalk. Items that do not fit this criteria will not be accepted.

Once your submission is received, the artwork will be chosen for placement on the Artwalk. Artists accepted to exhibit, will be contacted for scheduling and payment, and will be given a special code if they wish to pay the vendor fee online.

Cost to participate is $40 per artist

Please submit your name, phone number, and 
digital images to Susi Trottnow at:
