    Creative Cocktails August 2015

    Adam Campbell's Mural at Nomad's Music Lounge

    Join us at Nomad's Music Lounge in South Fayetteville for Creative Cocktails August 2015. Bring a friend and come meet the makers, doers and creatives in our region. This event will include a fundraising component. Adam Campbell, a local painter, is completing a mural on a wall that faces the Nomad's Music Lounge patio. Adam's materials are being covered by Nomad's, but he is currently doing the project without pay because of his passion for gaining more work beautifying communities with murals. All of us are going to appreciate it, love it and enjoy it. Why don't we show our appreciation by paying the artist? Our co-host Northwest Arkansas Creative Arts Network is fiscally sponsoring him so donations can be tax deductible. Energize Southside has joined in as a co-host for this August event. Learn how they are working to make South Fayetteville a fun, creative, and economically thriving place for businesses, customers, residents and visitors. 

    Thanks to 21c Bentonville for hosting us for July and to everyone who was able to join us!
