“Great Arts Area”

Main Street Arts District
Ranked #17 of 116 things to do in Scottsdale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 November 2017 via mobile

The Scottsdale Main Street Arts District has fun street art and a panoply of art, antique, and collectibles shops. Our experience was that the shopkeepers were extremely friendly and helpful. Some art stores can be off putting or rude but we did not find that to be the case. We found a wonderful reasonably priced print which really works for us.

There are some very good galleries in Old Town and a large number of fairly average tourist shops as well. It is an interesting area and worth a visit.

Large number and variety of galleries within a few blocks walk. Got to appreciate diverse variety of genres, prices, etc. More than one gallery had welcoming staff/owners that explained and described pieces and their creators.

The Art Walk on Thursday evenings is one of the oldest art walks in continuous operation. There is a large variety of art at the many galleries. There are also many types of quality restaurants and bars to rest the feet. I recommend taking at least two Thursdays to cover it all.

On a usual Thursday in October the majority of shoppes/Galleries were closed at 11 am. Strange. Perhaps this is a weekend activity?

The few galleries that were open were nice and the proprietors friendly.
