Jane’s Walk: Art & the City

WP_20150416_004On Saturday, May 2nd, meet in front of the Turks Head building for a special Jane’s Walk downtown tour focusing on Art & the City. Starting at Turks Head Plaza, the group will walk through the Financial District, Kennedy Plaza, and Burnside and Biltmore parks, examining historic monuments and plazas along with modern art installations. Tour leaders will consider the value of public art, its longevity, and its place in an evolving downtown district.

Jane’s Walk is an international movement of free, citizen-led walking tours inspired by Jane Jacobs. The walks inspire people to share stories, explore their cities, and connect with neighbors.
