CORNELIUS – The Cornelius Cultural Arts Group aims to mark downtown Cornelius on the map as a destination arts district.

Starting July 12, BellaLove will host a monthly art crawl that will feature some of the area’s most talented and innovative artisans as well as live performances, food trucks and special offers from local businesses, beer and wine and good times.

The events will take place the second Friday of every month, from 5-9 p.m. in the parking lot of Oak Street Mill and inside Kadi Fit lifestyle design studio.

Similar to the quarterly 'TawbaWalk Art and Music Festival, 2nd Friday will be more intimate and in a more geographically concentrated setting.

“Cultural art makes sense of our current environment through exploration of creativity,” Said Jessica Boye with BellaLove. “Cultural arts refer to transformation and a collaboration of different creative art forms. One way to explore such creativity is to invite the community to a monthly art show. Bella Love will host, with the good vibes you have come to expect.”

2nd Friday is sponsored by Park Avenue Properties and Cornelius Cultural Arts Group.
