Follow the Art
Artober in the Gulch

We are excited to bring Artober to the Gulch this year. Artober Nashville has been a month-long celebration of the arts since 2011, and in 2016 it was adopted by NowPlayingNashville of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. Thank you to NowPlayingNashville for its dedication to supporting the arts in Nashville, and Middle Tennessee!

Art Beat Partners 

As the saying goes, it takes a village, and in putting together Follow the Art weekend,  this certainly is the case. We are thankful to our neighbors in the Gulch for their generous support in helping us celebrate Artober:

W Nashville, Thompson Nashville, Sambuca, Barre 3 & Station Inn.
