Marietta Square Art Walk heats up the Square this Friday, August 7th from 5pm to 9pm. Visitors enjoy gallery openings, live music, dining and late-night shopping throughout the Square. Local artists display their art along the charming sidewalks of Marietta while musicians perform around every corner from Church Street to Atlanta Street and everywhere in between.
“The Marietta Square Art Walk has been a great event to give exposure to local artists. We love being a part of it, and we get a great response from both artists and people attending.”
~ Lenny Thompson, owner of Lenny’s Hair Salon on Church Street.
