last evening. Zanesville has a thriving "artist colony." There are a
significant number of art galleries in the downtown and their
"First Friday" efforts have created a well attended "gallery walk"
through the area. The local talent is diverse and impressive and
supportive of each other. Zanesville is starting to use the "arts"
as an economic development/tourism tool. Judging by their
recent efforts, they are having success. While the festival offers
food, we walked to the Old Market House Inn and had a
fabulous dinner in air conditioned comfort (followed by desert
at Tom's Ice Cream Bowl). Mark it as a "let's go there" for next
August. It is a fun evening. Take your wallet. The art is for sale
and folks were buying.
The Y Bridge is a treasure in and of itself.
Using it for an art festival is a stroke of genius.
