As someone who appreciates art, it is hard not to get excited about a city who's downtown streets crowd several times a year with folks moving from gallery to gallery taking in everything from oil painting to photography to glass blowing. An Art Walk, held the first Friday each March, May, October, and December is an excellent way to take in the French Quarter and appreciate artwork in a social setting. Galleries in the French Quarter will open their doors for extended hours and greet guests with hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and recent work.
