Free art experiences can be hard to come by and art is a subject always wrestling with access issues. The history of art means that over the years, it has become more and more accessible. From the days when kings and queens were the benefactors-in-chief, to today where you can have an art business up and running in half a day.

As we look to value experiences over possessions, and find ways to see the art right where we are, we decided to put together a list of free art experiences in major cities across the USA. 

Keep in mind that availability and offerings may change, so it’s always a good idea to check current information before planning. 

Here are some free art experiences suggestions for each major city:

  • New York City, NY
  • Los Angeles, CA
      • Explore the street art in the Arts District.
      • Visit the Getty Center or Getty Villa, which offers free admission (though parking may have a fee).
      • Attend the Downtown Art Walk, a monthly event featuring open galleries and art events.
