April brings a lot of spring fun to 'famously hot' Columbia, SC, and we're ready for April 25-27 as Artista Vista, the Columbia region's longest running gallery crawl, comes back for its 22nd year. Why do we love Artista Vista?

Artists and galleries stay open late for three days of gallery crawls. It's in the beautiful and historic Congaree Vista. And it's free.

Artista Vista features locally, regionally and nationally recognized artists, some of whom will be on hand to chat with visitors and give attendees insight into their work and shows. The gallery crawl will also feature installation art from Congaree Vista Guild and music for you to enjoy as you walk from place to place. Just to give you even more reason to visit Artista Vista, many galleries will offer complimentary beverages and hors d'oeuvres too.
