Downtown Nashville Art District Upgrade

Downtown Nashville Art District Upgrade

The newly updated block of 5th Avenue North, between Church and Union Streets, is almost complete and 5th Avenue of The Arts is starting to come together.

This section of downtown is home to 20 art galleries, multiple shops and within feet of Nashville's premier upscale condo developments.

Anne Brown opened the first gallery on the street 16 years ago. Today The Arts Company has been joined by several large galleries on 5th Avenue North and many more inside The Arcade building.

This section of downtown has been transformed as Metro Public Works begins to wrap up the 6 month, $1.5 million project that has drastically updated the look of the street.

The city has repaved 5th avenue, constructed new wider sidewalks, planted new landscaping and created pedestrian areas alongside the road. 5th avenue which used to be a one-way is now a paved two-way street and the most exciting update - lots and lots of walls of LED lights coming down around the block. LED light curtains will hang across the street from 30 foot polls.

You'll be able to see our street from the new Music City convention center. So as you look up the hill, we'll be a destination," Jeff Rymer, owner of Rymer Gallery explained.

Many feel that the streetscape plan will change the look and feel of downtown Nashville.

"Not just to this street, this block, but symbolically it's a step forward for the arts and Nashville as a creative center," Anne Brown, owner of The Arts Company explained.
