French Broad Friday in Marshall is back! What began as a collaborative effort between the Island Studio artists and a few Main street businesses has become a branded, monthly event, complete with funding and mementos.

Many want to know, why mermaids? I can best explain it as intended,  performance art in appreciation to the river and in jest of the Coney Island mermaids in all their splendor. We had never thought we would see the mermaids again.

Many folks continue to ask, why mermaids? I suggest we call all creatures of the river to join us in celebration of our French Broad River. All creatures great and tiny.
