Friday, June 11 recap: One fine night with the Bicentennial Art walk.


Plenty of folks were strolling downtown New Albany last evening, and I overheard more than a few who’d been to the Amphitheater for music, stopped to look at the Bicentennial Public Art installations, checked in at Thorpe Woodworks or the Gallery on Pearl, and ended with a meal and libation at one of the eateries. We had a good crowd all night at the Brewhouse.

Leticia Bajuyo didn’t really need my help describing the context and inspiration for her “Brew History: All Bottled Up” sculpture, but I stuck around and answered a few questions about beer and brewing history in New Albany.

Slow Charleston, an informal aggregation derived from the group Arnett Hollow, played on the patio and were bluegrassy-marvelous, even for me. The weather largely cooperated with breeezes and a slight reduction in humidity. It’s looking like a chance of showers today for the Celts on the River show, but rain or shine, NABC will be serving beers and River City Winery wines at the Amphitheater.
