Opportunity to Display Local Art in Franklin Businesses

Dear Franklin Downtown Partnership Businesses:  
This summer businesses will have a unique opportunity to support the Franklin Art Association by partnering with local artists to display their work.   Please read the letter below and contact the Art Association if you would like to partner with a local artist.
The Franklin Cultural District Committee is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the first Franklin Cultural Festival from Wednesday, July 29 to Sunday, August 2, 2015.  

The Celebration will take place in various locations in downtown Franklin including: The Black Box Theater (inside and outside on its stage) and Historical Museum, in locations along Main Street that may include but are not limited to The Cake Bar, Dean College, the Public Library, the Town Common, the Senior Center and the Horace Mann Middle School, and in other locations (businesses, restaurants, etc.) The programming will include fine arts, musicians, performers, actors, dancers, poets, culinary artists and photographers.
The Franklin Art Association is interested in doing a joint venue with the FDP.  We would like to get a sense of whether any members of the Downtown Partnership would be willing to allow artists to display work on their walls and or window, during the festival, possibly  having the artist setup inside or out and paint.
Our belief is the pairing of artists and businesses will be beneficial to both. If you have an interest in this joint venue with the Franklin Art Association, please contact Daydre Hamilton, committee chairperson.
Thank You,  Daydre Hamilton  H- 508-528-4421
