Urban Loft + Art Tour 2017

Thursday, October 12, 2017
3:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Tours 3:00 – 6:30 p.m. | Reception 5:30 – 9:00 p.m.

We invite you to privately tour Downtown Asheville’s most stunning art-filled lofts and impressive architecture during the 2017 Urban Loft + Art Tour. Loft + gallery locations are different this year than in previous years!

We will also provide an update on the Museum’s construction project. Departing from the Museum On the Slope at 175 Biltmore Avenue (the former Foam & Fabric building), timed walking tours begin at 3:00 p.m. and continue every 15 minutes thereafter through 6:30 p.m. Walking tours last approximately 90 minutes. Please ask about our low-impact tour options to accommodate people with mobility concerns. At the conclusion of their tour, guests are invited to enjoy beverages and light hors d’oeuvres at an ongoing reception being held at the Slope from 5:30 – 9:00 p.m.

This year, we are also offering VIP Red Carpet options at 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. that include additional lofts, galleries + more (Museum members $70, non-members $75).
