Weekend Pick: Tomato Art Fest



OMG! Tomatoes! So Red (or yellow or pink or green or orange). So sweet (or tart or earthy). It's easy to forget that, like people, tomatoes come in every shape, size, color and style, so it's no surprise that they warrant their very own block-party-tastic celebration. This annual East Nashville event is once again anchored by Art & Invention Gallery's Tomato Art Show which features works inspired by this versatile—and oh so juicy—fruit. In addition, there will be a parade, children's activities, Bloody Mary and recipe competitions, The Tomato King & Queen Pageant, live music and more. Costumes welcome. On Friday night, Art & Invention hosts the Tomato Art Preview Party featuring treats from Whole Foods, wine pairings by Woodland Wine Merchant and live music by The Dean Martinis (7-9 p.m.) For a complete schedule, visit tomatoartfest.com.
