I AM ART NASHVILLE's Inaugural Show Set for W. O. Smith Music School, 6/1


Join us for i am Art Nashville during its inaugural show: 6-11 pm on Saturday, June 1, 2013 at the W. O. Smith Music School, located at 1285 8th Avenue South, Nashville.

i am Art Nashville coincides with Nashville's own Saturday Art Crawl and will open with the June crawl at 6pm. i am Art Nashville is a celebration of life through art and art through life. We invite you to attend our one-night only showcase of local artists, artisans, and performers. The event is free to attend!

This event is the brainchild of local arts lover and supporter, Tanya Radic of Radical Art. She began with the aim of celebrating her 60th birthday - and the concept for the show was cultivated as a celebration of life through art and art through life. Accordingly, there will be birthday cake! Tanya would like to transform this celebration into an annual Nashville arts event.

Refreshments will be offered by The Trailer Perk and Smoke Et Al. East Nashville's own Myridia Restaurant & Lounge will be providing a cash and card bar, thanks to owner Kaz Hishida.

All of the participating artists are Nashvillians currently active in the arts community; many have independent shows and several participate frequently in group shows with Nashville's Untitled artist group.
