The development of the arts in Hot Springs has given the city another reason to receive international attention. Acclaimed as one of the nation's fastest growing art towns, Hot Springs has been included in the top list of The Best Small Art Towns in America. Fine art galleries and studio spaces have opened throughout historic downtown Hot Springs and since 1989, Gallery Walk receptions have been held the first Friday of every month from 5-9 p.m. Gallery Walk is a great opportunity to tour opening exhibits at the galleries and featured artists are also often present to discuss their work during the receptions.

Along with the visual arts, Hot Springs also features an outstanding array of acclaimed music festivals including the Hot Springs Music Festival, JazzFest, and numerous other performances. The Hot Springs Music Festival is held the first two weeks of June each year and features outstanding classical performances by selected talented pre-professional musicians and mentors throughout the world - a not to be missed event. Hot Springs is also home to the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival - a ten day event held annually in Hot Springs that draws thousands of talented filmmakers, directors, and enthusiasts to view some of the most notable documentary films of the year.
