Frequently Asked Questions

Art Month South Walton is an initiative of the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County with the purpose to bring neighborhoods, organizations and businesses together to present quality arts and entertainment to the community. Spanning at least ten days, Art Month will feature visual, performing and literary arts programming in diverse formats and in various venues throughout South Walton and beyond.

AMSW events happen throughout South Walton and also in the northern part of Walton County. Events can take place in galleries, businesses, restaurants, outdoors, indoors, and in any traditional or non-traditional space – the sky’s the limit.

In its first year, Art Month South Walton will include ArtsQuest – a fine arts show in Grand Boulevard, Digital Graffiti – a projection art festival in Alys Beach, the Seaside Writers Conference, and more! Our goal is for AMSW to include all kinds of performing, visual and literary art events, workshops, exhibits, concerts and creative experiences!

Interested organizations and individuals can submit an event to be included in AMSW. Submissions are accepted year-round but must be received by March 1 each year to be included in the current year’s Art Month. Submission forms can be downloaded online. We encourage arts organizations and businesses, galleries, artists, designers, architects, schools, communities and creators of any kind to come up with an idea to be a part of Art Month.

Most events have their own lodging partners, which we have listed on our VISITORS page. Lodging partners usually offer nice discounts to those coming into town for AMSW events.

• Workshops or classes in gallery or studio
• Behind the scenes sneak-peak during creation process (painting, theatre, music)
• Literary readings
• Talks, tours, panels to discuss creative topics of any kind
• Film showings
• Multi-day festivals, events, conferences
• Public art installation
• Be creative and come up with a unique idea! We are happy to brainstorm with you!

There is currently no fee to be included in AMSW. We do require that you include the Art Month logo on your event collateral (posters, brochures, postcards, print ads). Logos and brand standards will be supplied to you.

Your event will be promoted on the AMSW website and in social media campaigns. Additionally, AMSW will be marketed locally, regionally and nationally through digital, print and radio campaigns. You will also be a part of the first-ever community-wide arts initiative of this kind.

Some events are free and some are ticketed. Visit each event’s listing on our website for complete details.

Feel free to send us an email at info@culturalartsalliance.com and we will help in any way we can.
