Unfiltered: Portfolio Walks

Have a Drink, and See Art!

During each 4-day session of the Meeting Place, one night is reserved for an Unfiltered: Portfolio Walk event. Attended by over 300 people, these Portfolio Walks provide a positive and dynamic environment for networking and dialogue between artists and attendees. These events take place outside of the scheduled review sessions, and without the barriers of a formal exhibition space.

Since its inception in 2008, the Portfolio Walks program has grown in popularity, becoming one of the most popular events of FotoFest. FotoFest invites local collectors groups, Houston art lovers, Biennial visitors, Meeting Place reviewers, and the general public to the Portfolio Walks. Visitors to these nights are encouraged to speak with the artists, view their work, and purchase work that is available for sale.

Participation in this event is included in the Meeting Place registration fee. Each Meeting Place registrant will have a designated space during the Portfolio Walk.
