Nfocus Magazine Covers The Conservancy Gala
Head to Nfocusnashville.com to read an excellent recap of this year's Conservancy Gala penned by Abby White, and relive the evening with photos from Michael W. Bunch.
White writes, "Centennial Park may very well be the only place in Nashville this year that's hosted music festivals, a black-tie gala, craft fairs, art exhibits, educational programs and a Rolling Stone (that would be Mick Jagger, whose peaceful day at the park this summer set the social media channels ablaze). For this year's highly anticipated Conservancy Gala, we knew we were in for an intriguing evening, apropos to this year's theme Designs to Intrigue. Also ablaze was the tented red-carpet entry, where guests entered the Parthenon to an array of sensory delights, from strolling sketch artists to stunning dancers and delightful food and drinks, all to raise funds to ensure that Centennial Park and the Parthenon will be enjoyed for generations to come."

Parthenon Lit In Original Colors
On November 30, Nashvillians caught a glimpse of what the original Parthenon looked like as Tokyo Broadcasting Systems projected the original colors on the Nashville Parthenon. The event was part of its long-running travelogue show "Sekai Fushigi Hakken," or "Discover World's Wonders."
"No one in modern age has ever seen the Parthenon in full color as it originally appeared over 2500 years ago. We are so lucky to find out Nashville's full-scale replica is available for this project," said Masanobu Miyoshi, the segment director of Sekai Fushigi Hakken.
If you missed the spectacle, fear not. The unique display may be viewed in the video below.
