February—it’s the shortest month of the year, but there’s definitely no shortage of exciting developments happening here in downtown Nashville. When thinking of article ideas for this month’s “Arts + Makers” magazine, we definitely were motivated by the talented creatives who beautify our neighborhoods with their expressive work.

Whether it’s local theater performances, the Nashville arts scene, our abundant spectrum of musicians, or handmade goods from local artisans, we admire the creative culture bursting within our city. We hope you find inspiration in these pages on behalf of our community. Consider this edition a guide to inventive notions, and hit the town to unleash your own creativity!

We hope to see you around!
