2. Celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the Franklin Art Scene & Franklin Theatre
The Franklin Art Scene is continuing its 5th anniversary celebration in conjunction with the Franklin Theatre on Friday, July 1 by including a special live artist exhibition and movie showing of “Saving Banksy,” presented by Nashville Arts Magazine at the historic landmark, in addition to featuring a wide range of local artisans at new locations. Coordinated by the Downtown Franklin Association, the free event will include various participating sites dispersed in and around downtown—including the Second South District and Bridge Street, as well as up and down Columbia Avenue. As part of both the Franklin Theatre and Franklin Art Scene’s 5th anniversary, the community will have the opportunity to celebrate the historic movie house which reopened to the public as a world class music venue and multi‐purpose arts facility in 2011. Local artists Chris Ousley, Roy Laws and Laura Neal will paint live, on location at the Main Street fixture during the first Friday crawl. Then at 9:30 p.m., there will be a special movie showing of “Saving Banksy,” presented by the Franklin Theatre and Nashville Arts Magazine, that chronicles the impact of internationally‐known graffiti artist, Banksy.
