Participants and guests can park at the Phoenix Art Museum where there is FREE PARKING, shuttle service and Artlink Volunteers to answer your questions. There is on street parking or parking garages throughout downtown Phoenix.

You can start from any gallery found on the Artlink First Friday map. First time visitors find it easiest to start at the:
Phoenix Art Museum
1625 North Central Avenue.
602.257.1880

How you get around is up to you. It is called an artwalk so most people simply walk from one gallery to the next. Again, refer to the map. If you would like to visit more isolated galleries, you may need to drive, bicycle, pedi-cab, or use the FREE SHUTTLE BUS.

Artlink provides shuttle stops that are FREE during First Friday. Check the map and look for signs near the galleries, then hop on at any stop and make your way around downtown. The shuttle begins at 6 PM and runs until 10 PM.

Many of the stops on the tour are full-time businesses that have regular hours throughout the month! Check out their special events.

Tip: Don’t waste the entire night waiting for the bus. Many of the galleries are close to each other. Biking is a great way to get around.
