Flipping a Fender Stratocaster upside-down, acclaimed singer/songwriter and lefty guitarist Malina Moye will perform at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, June 7. Described as a modern day Renaissance woman, she’s a quadruple threat, carving out her own lane in today’s music scene as one of the few artists in history able to straddle both rock and soul genres. Moye’s musical narrative boasts an impressive resume that includes making history as the first African-American woman to play the National Anthem on guitar at a major sporting event, performing at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and owning her own successful record label. Recently, Jet Magazine praised her as “the highlight of the evening” after she headlined a sold-out concert with Chaka Khan to honor the legendary humanitarian Stevie Wonder.

completed in mid-May. The retail space is 100 percent leased: joining Canton Glass Works will be Journey Studio and Erinn’s Laine Primitive Candles.
It is time to welcome our new businesses to downtown. Corporate Downtown Bar & Grill replaces Pete’s Grill at Cherry Avenue and Fourth St. NE. Sheri’s at Shears has opened to serve food and drink at the former Peter Shears location at 427 Tuscarawas Street E. Deli Ohio will occupy the previously vacant building at 328 Walnut Avenue NE. Cork and Canvas at 320 Third St. NW and Grapes in a Glass at 575 Market Avenue N. will specialize in wine. And all of this is happening as the summer season sets upon the downtown center city. There has never been a better time to come downtown for lunch, dinner or cocktails, and enjoy our fine arts venues and attractions.
Six new apartments are available on the second level. Square footage of each apartment ranges from 548 square feet to 651 square feet. Prices range from $1.00 to $1.10 per square foot, plus utilities. All appliances are included and parking is available on site.

Be sure to mark your calendar and plan to attend these exciting events.
In early May, the Canton Development Partnership unveiled an updated version of our 2003 Downtown Master Plan. It was certainly prudent to update our existing plan based upon all the radical changes in our local and national economy. Our consultant, Charles Buki of czb LLC, provided his findings and offered recommendations on how to take our downtown to the next level of activity. We look forward to working with our committees, The City of Canton and the community to carry out this dynamic plan. Enjoy the spring and summer months and remember to support our restaurants, retailers and art venues.

First Friday Tidbits Make a Difference | May 3 Helping hands, feeding the hungry, and adopting a pet are the underlying mission of an evening devoted to the nonprofits that keep Stark County safe, secure and satisfied. Tents with agency info are the backdrop to a heartwarming night of summer song, dance, new art and new friends as the monthly street party moves back outside and ready for release from a wicked winter’s grasp.
Red, White and Blues | June 7 This First Friday bridges the blues from street to street, connecting the dots and the dancers as it ties to the twelfth annual Canton Blues Festival, taking over our downtown this weekend. All the galleries will be getting down with music, new art and summer sales in this all-American celebration of hot licks, cool chicks and heart-pounding kicks.
Chalk the Walk | July 5 This First Friday needs no introduction. Just watch where you step as the streets and sidewalks will be covered with over 20 canvases of temporary public art. The 2013 Battle of the Band winners, Good Hours, will headline the Cleveland Avenue stage, along with Around the Block Band. And if that doesn’t color your world, check out the Sumi Ink Art project.

4th Street Flea Market coming this June After you spend some time at the Canton Farmers’ Market this summer, take a stroll down Fourth Street for the 4th Street Flea Market! This isn’t your everyday flea market, either. The 4th Street Flea is a weekly gathering of artists, vendors and nostalgia enthusiasts that sell and purchase original artwork, rare collectible items, handmade goods and unearthed vintage treasures. The goal is to feature a variety of vendors selling a vast array of items including vintage clothing, handmade goods, art, toys, comics, records, jewelry, buttons, books, retro collectibles, music instruments, posters, crafts and many one of kind items found throughout the debris of American pop culture from the past and present. The support of patrons and collectors not only helps to keep 100% of the money spent at the 4th Street Flea Market in the local economy, but it also helps fulfill the dreams and goals of artists as they operate both start-ups and sustain small businesses. Visit the Flea Market every Saturday this summer along 4th Street NW, alongside the studios and galleries in the heart of the Canton Arts District. Seeking Vendors! Affordable vendor space for the Flea Market is still available, and starts at just $10 per day. Visit 13thfloorgallery. com for more information or contact Billy Ludwig at (330) 280-1977.
