‘Boro Art Crawl Success Brings Holiday Crawl

Thursday, November 19, 2015

On Friday, December 11 from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm, Murfreesboro will host their second Boro Art Crawl. The inaugural Boro Art Crawl, that took place on October 9, was a great success, having better than expected attendance on a cold and rainy night.

“[It was] such an awesome event, even if it rained,” said Jennifer Bombardi-Mount.

Business Participants

The event will once again encompass predominantly the Murfreesboro downtown and surrounding areas, but will also stretch from the Middle Tennessee State University campus to Mayday Brewery. Participating businesses include, L & L Contractors, Dreaming in Color, Hastings House Bed & Breakfast, Nurture Nook Day Spa, Cultivate Coworking, Liquid Smoke, Let’s Make Wine, The Write Impression, FunTiques, Sugaree’s, Walnut House, Alley on Main, Wallstreet, Downtown Shoppes on West Main, Greenhouse Ministries, Smoke & Mirrors, MTSU (Student Photo Gallery and Baldwin Photo Gallery), Two-Tone, Moxie Art Supply, Mayday Brewery, Center for the Arts, Murfreesboro Art League, Studio 902, Top of the Block, Appleton’s, The Block, Daffodilly Designs, and Murfreesboro City Hall Rotunda.

“The City of Murfreesboro is happy to once again be participating in the Boro Art Crawl by opening the City Hall Rotunda to viewing by Crawl participants,” said Eric Snyder, chairman of the City Hall Arts Committee. “This month we are featuring artists who were a part of this fall’s Greenway Arts Festival.”

Different Styles of Art

The inaugural Boro Art Crawl introduced a variety of artistic styles and mediums to the Murfreesboro community. There was some remarkable art from well-known local artists, as well as emerging student artists from from MTSU. For this event the committee has added additional artists, along with the new venues.

“The first event appealed to all kinds of people,” said Boro Art Crawl planning committee chairman and downtown business owner, Todd Wilson. “We saw entire families including small children and grandparents, long-time serious art collectors, and college students.”

Sponsors of the Crawl

“We would like to thank our sponsors, Downtown Murfreesboro Business Alliance, Contract Management Services, John and Lee Anne Carmack, and our new media in-kind sponsor, VIP Magazine,” said Lee Rennick, another member of the Boro Art Crawl planning committee and a long-time long time arts advocate. “Without their support we would not be able to supply signage and maps.”
