we art nashville

Nashville Scene
We Art Nashville Flood Benefit
When: Fri., May 21, 6-9 p.m.
The last First Saturday Gallery Crawl was the wettest on record, due to the tragic flooding in Middle Tennessee. Another, lesser tragedy was the miscommunication that found Fifth Avenue galleries effectively “canceling” the Crawl while their neighbors in the Arcade, the Downtown Presbyterian Church and Estel Gallery crawled on. This event will give Nashville gallery gawkers a chance to see what they missed the first time around, while providing much needed support for flooded friends and neighbors. It will also give the downtown art venues a chance to reboot and reconnect regarding the monthly mass convergence that owes its success specifically to the participation of the wide variety of venues on Fifth Avenue and beyond. Venues for this event include the regular Fifth Avenue and Arcade galleries as well as the Frist Center. $10 suggested donation.
