Incline Art Crawl To Take Place Oct. 14-15

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

The Incline Art Crawl will be held on Oct. 14 and 15 from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. each day at Old Mountain Road in the village of St. Elmo, along the Incline tracks at the foot of Lookout Mountain.

A kick-off party will be held on Friday, Oct. 13 from 5-8 p.m. at the Mad Knight Brewery Building, 4015 Tennessee Ave., across from Forest Hills Cemetery.

"Over 40 visual and performative artists in a colorful outdoor show along the Incline tracks are on-hand to demonstrate, participate and stimulate your senses.  Incline riders have never seen such a site upon descending the mountain into the charming and growing village of St. Elmo.  Three beer purveyors, several restaurants and new galleries have recently opened and this biannual art festival will soon become a popular tradition - remember the Plum Nelly show back in the day?  Plum out of Tennessee and Nelly out of Georgia?  The Incline Art Crawl is a similar fine and folk art fest.  

"The juried art show features artists and makers in a broad range including rustic furniture, hand-forged knives, eco-art, vintage costumes, electric harp and clothesline show.  Along the route, pick up your Art Crawl Passport – a booklet of specials that local businesses will offer during the weekend," officials said.

DACA Or Amnesty To Become The Majority?
