66 Water St. Arts Cafe grand opening tonight

Staff Report

66 Water St. Arts Cafe will celebrate its grand opening from 5 p.m. to midnight tonight.

The grand opening will feature the first round of student art work, and the cafe will provide free coffee, drinks and treats for visitors.

Franklin 66 Water St., named for its address in downtown Franklin, exists from a partnership between the Franklin College campus and community. Art majors will be able to display their work there on a rotating schedule, and business and marketing majors are able to plan the budget and advertising. In the community, local businesses such as The Indigo Duck, Benjamin’s and Athens will provide food, coffee and drinks to be served at the cafe. The Franklin Development Commission, the Johnson County Community Foundation and the City of Franklin have supported this project.

Until the cafe is fully operational, there will be shortened business hours for the month of December. The cafe will typically be open from 2 p.m. to 1 a.m.
