Community Arts Project
The Williamson County Cultural Arts Commission’s Community Arts Project from the County Fair is on display in Franklin City Hall from November 1 to November 27. A reception is scheduled for Wednesday, November 14 from 5 PM to 7 PM.
For the second year, at the Williamson County Fair, the Williamson County Cultural Arts Commission (WCCAC) sponsored a Community Fine Art Project. This project is held in SunTrust Bank’s Arts and Photography Tent and is available to anyone who wishes to participate in creating a lasting piece of art. The art that is produced is displayed in communities around Williamson County for the following year.
At the Fair, WCCAC members set up canvases, paints, brushes, sponges, and other materials. Each canvas was divided into squares, and each participant was given the chance to paint in one of the squares. Visitors to the Tent were encouraged to express themselves on these canvases, following a theme that varied from day to day: sea life, farm, zoo, and Tennessee. People of all ages worked on the project, which included many from Williamson County but some from as far away as California.
These canvases are to be displayed at locations in different parts of Williamson County over the next twelve months.
Franklin City Hall is located at 109 3rd Avenue South. For more information on the exhibit or the reception, call 550-6618.
