The After Hours Artwalk is a monthly event held in Downtown Wichita Falls that features artists of all mediums. Please make sure that if you setting up that you are featuring your own works of art. We ask that if you are not an artist you provide an art activity to engage the audience and uphold the artistic integrity of the After Hours Artwalk. The event typically brings 7 – 8,000 people per month.
