The Birmingham Art Crawl, held every first Thursday since June 2014, is a monthly art happening that brings people to the cultural and historical city center and showcases Birmingham’s deep and energetic pool of creative art talent. It’s a great way to meet local artists and performers, buy and appreciate their work, and be a part of the rapidly growing art scene in Birmingham.
