For the Locals: Nashville Art March This Sunday

Walk the Art March Downtown this Sunday!

Join the Mayor and Myles Maillie
and get healthy and fit while touring primary downtown arts venues.

Nashville Mayor Karl Dean’s community-wide walking effort, “Walk 100 Miles With the Mayor,” ventures into downtown at 2 p.m. Sunday to join the Downtown Art March, a walking tour of downtown’s notable arts and cultural facilities in support of the arts. The walk begins at Church Street Park, across the street from the main Nashville Public Library, 615 Church Street.

The Art March is coordinated by Nashville artist Myles Maillie, who encourages walkers to wear colorful costumes – turning the walk itself into a moving piece of art – in celebration of the arts in the community. The first 250 people who check in at the information desk will receive a voucher for free admission to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts.

“Walk 100 Miles” is a free healthy lifestyle program, created by Mayor Karl Dean that challenges Nashvillians to get out and walk 100 miles before July 9. To date, more than 3,600 people are participating in the walks with more than 60,000 miles logged. More information is available about the effort at
