The Downtown Duluth Arts Collective (DDAC) is a grassroots organization, representing downtown arts businesses, galleries, individual artist studios and cultural centers. It is an exciting time of growth for arts groups in downtown Duluth.  From the HART District on one end and the Duluth Art Institute on the other, the downtown arts community is thriving. The DDAC produces the Arts Walk as a way to live in to their mission to unite, revitalize, and enrich the community through the arts. We are focused on building upon the City’s existing assets and reputation as an arts-friendly place in which to live, work and play while remaining inclusive of and equitable to all.

Additional Arts Walks in 2019 are planned for the final Friday of each month, including August 30, September 27, October 25, November 29, and a special holiday Arts Walk on December 13.
