The Fort Myers Art Walk was organized in October 2008 by Greg Knevevich, Claudia Goode, Andy Howl, Jamie Kuser, Terry Tincher, David Acevedo, Xavier Brignoni, and Jim Griffith (amoung others) to unify the downtown Fort Myers art galleries into a singular active and vocal organization that helps the River District be a "Must See" destination spot and a point of interest for businesses both old and new.

Many of the founding members have moved on but their hearts are filled with love for this event and the River District.  

Arts for ACT Gallery has been involved with Fort Myers Art Walk since its inception.  It is the oldest gallery in the River District and continues to be one of the most popular places to view art in Southwest Florida
