Local musicians and artists will have the opportunity to show off their abilities to their community Friday.  The First Fridays Art Walks are a celebration of local artists and their work held by the Fairfield Arts and Convention Center.  This month’s walk features the Rhythm and Art Music Festival.  Thirteen musicians will appear on the square in Fairfield providing a concert of free music, bringing different styles ranging bluegrass to blues to funk.

Mark Soth is an Art Walk Board member.  He says this month’s Art Walk, being dedicated to music and art, is new for them, but he says the board thought it was time to give a voice to as many musicians as they could.  The art portion of the event will offer special exhibits and art venues located around the downtown area.

The music starts at 5:00 tomorrow and will last until 11.
