First Thursday Art Walk At Box House! says
Since the early 1960s, Pioneer Square’s Victorian storefronts and dusty upper floors provided a haven for gallery owners and artists alike. Today, this artistic community is the center of Seattle’s art scene.

Did you know First Thursday in Pioneer Square was the first Art Walk in the USA? In 1981, a group of Pioneer Square art dealers printed handout maps and on the first Thursday of the month painted footprints on the sidewalk outside their galleries. First Thursday soon evolved into a beloved fixture on the local arts calendar.

Today, First Thursday takes place each month in Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square neighborhood, from 6 pm to 8 pm, when leading art galleries throw open their doors to introduce their new exhibitions and artists.

The Art Walk in Pioneer Square is enhanced by the dozens of public art installations that can be found when walking between galleries. From the historic Native American Totem Poles in Occidental and Pioneer Square parks to the bright red “Sentinels” on guard outside the new Fire Station 10.
