The Boro Art Crawl returns to historic Murfreesboro Square on June 16, 2022 (Thursday). Originally founded in 2015 by a group of local artists wanting to help foster the downtown and Murfreesboro arts community, it was put on hold during the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Back now, local artists are teaming up with local businesses to showcase some of the best visual art that Murfreesboro has to offer, according to Eric Snyder, the new chairman of the Boro Art Crawl Committee.
