The 2012 Buenos Aires Gallery Nights launches this Friday bringing art enthusiasts together once again.

The monthly events, which have been part of the city agenda since 2001, seek to promote art and allow the public to get in touch with the city’s latest artistic talents.

This year American Express will be hosting guided tours to five select galleries starting at 7pm, 7.30pm, 8pm and 8.30pm at Arroyo and Esmeralda.

Additionally there will be a free minibus transportation service that will stop at the designated points on the Gallery Night circuit (marked as yellow points on the map).

This week’s Gallery Night will take place from 7pm-10pm in the Retiro, Barrio Norte and Recoleta areas. Future Gallery Nights will also feature a Palermo circuit.
