Immerse yourself in Athens and Decatur, two of North Alabama's most historic and lively downtowns on this art-centric and history-filled mobile workshop. Visit the Cook Museum of Natural Science, voted #1 New Museum by USA TODAY. Tour the Alabama Center for the Arts, a partnership between the colleges located in Athens and Decatur and High Cotton Arts, and art incubator that Athens Main Street opened in 2015. Learn how each downtown champions public art throughout their districts while maintaining their historic charm and character. Experience these efforts up close by visiting newly created public gathering spaces in abandoned alleyways that now boast vibrant art and events. And hear about how their spooky and interesting pasts connect with the present-day locations of these great public art projects, while also sampling local cuisine and ales from local purveyors!
