Covington’s White Linen Night This Saturday Celebrates the Arts Community

White Linen NightHistoric Downtown Covington’s second annual White Linen Night will take place on Saturday, August 15, 2015, from six to nine in the evening. The event is community-organized and paid for by the generous contributions of local business owners with the net proceeds donated to the Public Art for Covington Fund.

The Public Art for Covington Fund is a non-profit fund administered through the Northshore Community Foundation. The mission of this charitable endeavor is to place art in Covington that reflects the rich history and culture of the city, to reflect and reinforce Covington’s reputation and standing as an artist’s community.

Participating restaurants, bars and retail shops have agreed to donate ten percent of their sales for the night to the fund or have donated a fee towards covering the costs of decorations and publicity for the event. Some highlights of the event include: live projection art projects around town, including an interactive light painting and a projection and musical piece honoring the work of Walker Percy in the Southern Hotel’s courtyard; the inaugural Trailhead Art Market; a featured Pimms Cup cocktails at participating bars and restaurants; live music in the streets.
