The event gave new meaning to art that moves you
5-9 p.m. first Wednesday of each month
Spans 15 blocks of Downtown Jacksonville
Chamblin's Uptown hosted the first ever BodyArt Walk Tattoo Fashion Show at First Wednesday Art Walk July 3.
The theme of the July Art Walk was "Body and Wellness," which was more than appropriate for a celebration of the art of tattoos.
The BodyArt Walk was the idea of Chamblin's downtown area manager, Jennifer O'Donnell. Fathom Sphere, first place winner in the One Spark music category, opened up the night with a choreographed dance to "Around the World."
Wayne Wood emceed with the help of Fathom Sphere's Josh Pierre, who played some tunes and added colorful and hilarious commentary. Local band Memphibians joined in the fun as well, playing some of their songs.
Freyja Vansiren and Suzie West were the night's winners as decided by the crowd's applause and the judges appointed by O'Donnell, including Tad Lewek, David DeCamp, Dick Jackson and Scott Trammell.
