Artwalk Event Scheduled for Downtown Murfreesboro

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (ANFINSON)  --  Main Street businesses in Murfreesboro are joining forces to support the arts.

Following on the success of Nashville’s popular Artcrawl, MTSU sculpture student, Russell White is coordinating an Artwalk in Murfreesboro.

Local art lovers can hop from one Main Street venue to the next and view a variety of work made by local artists like Glen Merchant. Merchant is also the owner of Moxie Art Supply, which will serve as one the Artwalk venues.

“My work is at the Center for the Arts... The paintings are informal in a lot of ways even though most of the time they are symmetrically  or formally balanced... And the show at Moxie Art Supply is going to be MTSU students, and they are self curating that show, so it’s a surprise to me what’s going to be up.”

In addition to Moxie, other venues for the Artwalk will include Liquid Smoke, Three Brothers, The Murfreesboro Center for the Arts, Icon and Enchanted Planet.

The Artwalk will take place on Wednesday, September 26th from 6 to10 p.m.
