Over the next week, the public is invited to watch an artist create a mural of the Harpeth River in downtown Franklin.

The kick-off began on Friday with Franklin's August Art Crawl when local artist, Dennas Davis, began working on his mural of the Harpeth River.

Davis has set up his canvas on Second Avenue South in the courtyard of Gallery 202 and will be available to answer questions and talk with art fans while he paints the local scene.

“My painting won't last nearly as long as the river will, so we've got to take care of it,” said Davis.

The artist hopes to finish his mural by Saturday, August 10.

The mural will be displayed at the Harpeth River Watershed Association's annual ‘River Swing' fundraiser in October where it will be installed within the watershed for public viewing.

Prints of the work will be available for purchase later this fall with profits supporting the HRWA.
