Asheville's status as a heavyweight in the arts scene is certainly well-deserved. Its cultural prowess extends to all areas of the art spectrum, whether it be galleries, museums or public displays.
Case in point: the Asheville drum circle
. Every Friday night the city puts on a drum circle in downtown’s Pritchard Park
. Lots of people come – some drum, some dance. It’s been going on since 2001, and has become iconic in celebrating the city's eclectic art scene.
