Dear Cultural District Partners,

We hope you are doing well and that you have been able to enjoy some of this sunny weather.

As a result we were able to fund the requests of eight of our Cultural District partners. These grants will help to support exhibits, events, and performances during the ArtWALK/Celebration which will take place during the weekend of June 11th.

As we begin the planning for this event we are inviting all partners to our first planning meeting. This meeting which will be held virtually on the Zoom platform, will be on Thursday, March 25 at 7:00 PM. We hope that you will all join us for this meeting.

ArtWalk in Planning Stages, if businesses are interested please respond by Feb 19

Dear Franklin Cultural District Partners,

The mission of the Franklin Cultural District is to foster and encourage culture and the arts in our community.

To support this mission the Franklin Cultural District Committee (FCDC)  and the Franklin Art Association (FAA)  are working collaboratively to plan an ArtWalk event through the Franklin Cultural District. These groups are excited to feature several local Franklin artists and to support our local businesses.

The hope is that by offering this visual art display we will encourage more foot traffic through the Franklin Cultural District and the downtown area.

At this point in time the project is in the planning stages. We will have more details to share when we hear about the plan of our Cultural District Partners.

Currently the FCDC and the FAA are looking for:

  • Merchants/business owners who would be willing to have artwork displayed in their storefronts. The FCDC and the FAA will connect merchants with the artists
  • Although most of the artwork will be hung in the storefront windows, individual businesses could also have artwork inside their establishments if agreed upon with an artist
  • The artwork would be displayed by June 11th and would remain in store windows for the remainder of June and if possible during July as well
  • Any materials needed to have the artwork displayed will be taken care of by the FCDC

If you would be interested in participating in this event, please contact Nancy Schoen at nschoenfranklinculture@gmail.com  by Friday, February 19, 2021.

We hope that many of you will be willing to participate!

Regards,

The Franklin Cultural District Committee and The Franklin Art Association
