Dresden Community Farmer's Market & City Enhancement Project
The City of Dresden, in partnership with the University of Tennessee at Martin, Department of Visual and Theatre Arts, launched the “Meet the Artist” program. Local artists were featured at the Dresden Farmers Market twice monthly between May and September 2016. Intended to enhance the quality of community life and build support for local art, the program offered visitors opportunities to interact with artists through talks and demonstrations. The project also included a community-driven mural painted by young artists to enhance the Dresden City Park.
