The Boro Art Crawl is heating up the night on August 12. The every other month event will feature more than 40 artists in almost 30 different venues from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. offering food, music, live models, on-site painting, and open-mic poetry reading.
During the June Crawl, Sugaree's, the popular women's clothing store on Murfreesboro's city square, featured live models in the windows showcasing the unique designs of a local fashion designer, as well as great art. The live models were such a hit, they will strike a pose one more time, this time beside the artwork of Katherine Anne McGrath.
The Delineator's will once again read their poetry during the Crawl, this time at The Green Dragon. They will also be offering open-mic time in the back room for anyone in the audience who wishes to read a piece of their own poetry. The Green Dragon will feature the work of Beth Moore and Jonathan Gardner.
Joining the Boro Art Crawl for the first time are the popular women's clothing stores, Trendy Pieces and Bella's. They will feature the works of Phyllis Kitzler and Kelsey Gammon, respectively. Also new to the Crawl is Quinn's Mecantile, a new store on the corner of Lokey and Spring Streets. Tracy Toy has transformed an old house that was most recently a law office into a showplace for local artisans and those who like to upmarket vintage furniture. Quinn's will feature the work of Samantha Collier.
For the first time during the August Crawl, the Stones River Craft Guild, famous for their fall Studio Tour, will be showing the work of some of their members in the former Henry's Florist space on the Square.
