Gallery Main Street was created to serve as the nerve center of the arts community in Downtown Tyler. It is operated by the City of Tyler Main Street Department in cooperation with the volunteers of the Downtown Tyler Arts Coalition and Heart of Tyler, Inc.
The arts serve as an important factor in the revitalization of downtowns all over the United States, and Tyler is part of that trend. Since its opening in 2009, the gallery has presented hundreds of works of art to destination visitors from all over Texas, the United States and even several different countries throughout the world. In addition, the gallery’s volunteers present workshops for artists and the public, special events, public art projects and more.
The Downtown Tyler Arts Coalition not only presents visual art, but also performing arts and projects such as the Downtown Tyler Film Festival, which drew more than 90 entries from filmmakers worldwide in 2015.
All of these projects develop artists, create jobs, draw visitors and generate business in the downtown area while enhancing quality of life for the citizens of Tyler and the surrounding area.
