Artober Nashville

Did you know October is national Arts & Humanities Month? It is a collective recognition of the importance of culture in America. Metro Nashville Arts Commission has done a fantastic job of spearheading the month long celebration in Nashville, dubbed Artober.

Fifth Third Bank has been a big sponsor of Artober, hosting Artober Fridays at Fifth Third Bank through out the month. This Friday is the final event in the Friday series, and it will be held at the Hillsboro Village Fifth Third, near the intersection of 21st and Wedgewood.

I will be leading an interactive art making activity at today's event. There will also be food and fun live music by the Ukedeliks!

The activity invites you to stop by and contribute to this 3' x 6' painting of Hillsboro Village. The rough outline is pictured above; guest are encouraged to paint in or add onto any and all of their favorite parts of Hillsboro Village. This is free and open to the public. It's kid friendly, too!

Hope you can stop by and join me even if it's just a few moments on your lunch break- after all it takes a village to paint a Village!
