Nashville Neighborhood - Wedgewood/Houston
Keep your eye on Wedgewood/Houston. Nicknamed WeHo, this amazing area is a perfect example of the thriving creative community that is pushing Nashville to new heights. There are art galleries around every corner, and many places which invite you to create something of your own in Music City. Take the time to read below and find out why you need to journey to the neighborhood just south of SoBro.
This creative community is home to multiple art galleries within walking distance of each other. One venue you can see is the David Lusk Gallery which showcases artists from around the country who feature a whole spectrum of artistic practices from paintings and sculptures to photography and video. Just down the way is the Zeitgeist Gallery, a contemporary art gallery that engages viewers to explore a wealth of art through their changing exhibits. Each exhibit provides a rich experience to those who are moved by art, artists, and the creative process. That's not all. There are over 20 different places to see. A great way to experience them all is during Arts & Music, a free event which showcases the neighborhood's art scene each month. If you would like a complete list just head to: am-wh.com.
If you're like us, seeing art makes you want to create art. Create something of your own at Fort Houston. It's an amazing hub of creative people who come together to make something great in Music City. Also, Hip Hues offers a great experience. They are a cool business that teaches you how to create screen print shirts, bags, and more. Journey on over for a workshop or one of their in-studio parties for some great creative fun in Nashville.
After all that exploring, the stomach tends to start talking. Quiet the noise with any of the fine Nashville restaurants in WeHo.
