Emerging Artist Nate Foust on Franklin Street

Nathan Foust's focus is on quality still-lifes and oil paintings with an emphasis in set design. Whenever he works on a piece of artwork, there is excruciating attention to the details and lighting of the set.

The Emerging Artist Series showcases the artwork of up-and-coming local artists in a lit windowbox on downtown Franklin Street.  The windowbox is located on the south side of the 100 block of Franklin Street next to Walgreens.

Message In a Bottle: Hands-on Pop Up Art Installation

Message in a Bottle by Helen Seebold & Erin Lawler
133-C West Franklin Street - University Square

“Paint a bottle, write a message, watch the sculpture grow!” describes Message in a Bottle to a tee! Popping up at various locations, artists Helen Seebold and Erin Lawler invite community members to paint a small glass bottle or write a message to be placed in a pre-painted bottle, crossing that divide that often exists between viewer and artist. Encouraging a more personal connection to art, and the chance to share stories, the large glass sculpture found at 133C West Franklin Street will be created by you! 

Join the artists and become a part of the ever growing sculpture! Paint a Bottle, Leave a Message!
 Friday, March 14- at University Square (133C West Franklin Street) 6:30-8pm. Free parking!
