From noon-8:00 p.m., on March 15, 2014, the RAD (Rail Arts District) Studio Cruise returns.
The free annual event features art exhibits & sales at various galleries, artist demonstrations, live music, & more. When I get to Decatur, I’ll be making time to stop by The Market Events building (formerly the Academy Theater) to check out the Tudor Square re-development plans. Not only am I curious about what’s to come, but I can sample artisanal foods & beverages & shop the Root City Market while I’m there.
The RAD Studio Cruise takes place along one mile stretch of CSX rail line that passes through downtown Avondale Estates, into Decatur’s Laredo Drive industrial area, and along East Ponce De Leon Ave into Scottdale. Hours may vary by venue, but you can use the map of studios on the RAD Studio Cruise to plan your route.
New for 2014: There’ll be free trolleys running all day between RAD locations, including a stop at the north side Avondale Station, making it easy to take MARTA.
