"Local band, Rachel & The Ruckus are no rookies to the game as they have opened up for Nashville legend, Jimmy Hall….If you’re a fan of artists such as Sheryl Crow, Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town, then R&R is next up for you."~ Tatoo.com

Art Night Out will also feature The Art Market, a distinctive shopping experience with a wide variety of locally made arts and fine crafts.  These creative goods will be available for purchase from 30+ different local vendors and artists. Art Night Out visitors can also enjoy surprising flash mobs, live demonstrations by artists, crafters, dancers, and street performers.
