Gallery Night Mission

The mission of Gallery Night Pensacola is to create an engaging event that takes the “Arts to the Streets” where the local community and out-of-town visitors can connect with the unique Culture of Pensacola. Through this nonprofit organization, individual artists will have the opportunity to showcase their talent, and area arts organizations will host public performances and demonstrations; downtown merchants and community nonprofits come together to create the Gallery Night experience.

In our Taking ART to the Streets monthly event, painters, sculptors, musicians and more come together with sponsors, merchants and nonprofits to create a quality monthly event attended by tens of thousands (so far!).
