Covington White Linen for Public Art set for Aug. 19

North Shore residents get to don their white linens at one of the area’s popular cultural art events. Covington White Linen for Public Art hits downtown Covington on Saturday, Aug. 19.

The free event, now in its third year, will take place throughout downtown Covington’s Cultural Arts District from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., according to a press release. Live music, local vendors and art demonstrations will all be on tap for patrons to enjoy along blocked off areas of Columbia Street and Lee Lane. Local art galleries, shops and restaurants will also be open for business, providing special attractions and beverages for patrons to enjoy.

More than 40 local businesses will donate a percentage of their pre-tax sales during the event to the Covington Public Art Fund, according to the release.

“The Covington Business Association is proud to present this spectacular event. Not only does this event bring thousands of patrons into our local shops and businesses, but it also funds the creation of public art for downtown Covington, something that we are extremely passionate about,” Covington Business Association president Brad Schroeder said.
