Lubbock is a thriving university town with a whole lot of creative residents. It is well known for its music scene, and with good reason: Buddy Holly was born here after all. Yet music isn’t the only art embraced by Lubbock; plan a getaway at a Lubbock, TX, Bed and Breakfast and discover the fine arts of the Texas Panhandle.
Lubbock devotes itself to the arts on the first Friday of each month, between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. Art enthusiasts may walk, bike, or drive to the different participating venues on the First Friday Art Trail, or enjoy a guided tour and a free trolley ride. There are currently fourteen regularly participating First Friday Art Trail venues, and more are welcome to join.
Venues include the Tornado Gallery, McPherson Cellars, and Art on Texas Avenue – a commercial art gallery created to “promote art appreciation in the Texas Panhandle Region.” Larger venues include the Museum of Texas Tech University, the Municipal Garden and Arts Center, and the Buddy Holly Center.
Let the arts be a part of your next Lubbock Texas Bed and Breakfast vacation. Visit Lubbock on the first Friday of the month, and follow the First Friday Art Trail to see the finest art in Lubbock. It’s a delightful addition to any Lubbock Texas travel, whether you are in town for business, pleasure, or to visit a student at Texas Tech.
