New Demonbreun Viaduct to Debut on October 25

Excerpt from Media Advisory from Nashville Public Works:

Mayor and TDOT cut ribbon, businesses host public celebration marking much-anticipated completion of Nashville’s newest landmark

A new Demonbreun Street Viaduct will officially open next week with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and a free block party hosted by a coalition of Gulch-area businesses eager to celebrate being re-connected to each other and the downtown area.

Grand-opening festivities will take place in the late afternoon on Wednesday, October 25, and motorists can expect to begin driving over the new Viaduct later that evening.

“With the opening of this Demonbreun Street Viaduct we reunite key areas of our city with another beautiful bridge,” said Mayor Bill Purcell.

The new $8.3 million viaduct, which spans The Gulch and CSX Railroad between 10th Avenue and 12th Avenue, includes stylized railroad motifs, lighting and other unique architectural features that pay tribute to the city’s historic links to the railroad and music industries. It will open five months ahead of schedule, the result of an unprecedented partnership between local and state governments, according to Public Works Director Billy Lynch.

Art at the Arcade Group Reception

October 7, Saturday, 6-9pm.

On October 7, Saturday, from 6 to 9pm, Art at the Arcade launches its first group reception. It's finally happening! A creative oasis has just spurred out of Downtown Nashville. Nashville's first enclosed shopping mall, The Arcade, is now filled with art spaces.

For the longest time, this historic shopping mall has been a popular lunch destination. But now eateries are not the only reason to go to the Arcade. There are eight art galleries and studios filling the previously vacant units, upstairs and downstairs.

These art spaces, collectively known as Art at the Arcade, will have their inaugural group reception on October 7, Saturday, from 6 to 9pm, in conjunction with TAGs opening reception. (TAG is located at the Kress Building on Fifth Ave., across the street from the Arcade.)
