In their first event of 2021, the City of Somerset and the Somerset Tourist & Convention Commission are taking downtown out into Pulaski County with the #seemyset Art Market.

The event, an open-air market from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, March 27 at Suits-Us Farm, is an effort to build tourism at home by showcasing all downtown has to offer to local residents.

The #seemyset Art Market will feature a variety of vendors — including local and regional artists who will sell their work, plus several downtown boutiques and eateries. Food trucks will be available on-site and local musicians will perform acoustic sets throughout the day.

The highlight will be an auction sponsored by Ford Brothers Auctioneers to benefit art initiatives within the city. Bourbon barrel lids painted by local artists during the city’s Moonlight Festival in October will be auctioned during the event, with all money raised going to a new #seemyset Art Fund. That fund will be available to support future art projects within the city.

The Somerset Tourism and Healthy Somerset will also unveil a downtown Mural Walk during the market. Residents and visitors will be able to visit Somerset Tourism’s website, seesomerset.com, to view an interactive map directing them to each of the murals downtown sponsored by the city and learn more about the artists who created them — an initiative that not only promotes the city’s growing arts presence but encourages healthy behavior.

The market is presented by Applied Behavioral Advancements.
