A Message to Business Owners from the Franklin Cultural District Committee and the Franklin Art Association
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. The FCDC will have more details to share when the members 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 11 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
