New at GO WEST! this year is “Rooms to Let”, an innovative temporary art installation in a vacant house at 49 Martin Ave – just steps from the event.
It’s very cool. Take a look…

[b]Go West to Franklinton for Art, Music and More[/b]
By Lauren Wilson | June 8, 2011 10:30am
[i]Ã¢â‚¬Å“Go west, young man, and grow up with the country.Ã¢â‚¬Â
This Saturday, the Franklinton Development Association invites everyone to Go West (West Broad Street, that is) and grow up with the city.
Go West is FranklintonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s annual art and music block party, and everyone is welcome. For the third consecutive year, downtown Franklinton will transform vacant buildings into art galleries, a parking lot into a concert venue, and for only the second time in its 20-year history, TommyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Diner will stay open late for dinner.[/i]
