Art In Public Places

AIPP-horz-color

Art Comes in All Shapes & Sizes

We invite you to experience some of the larger variety with Art in Public Places, an annual exhibition featuring large-scale sculptures in Knoxville’s downtown public spaces, McGhee Tyson Airport, and Oak Ridge.

Public art beautifies our streetscapes, contributes to civic pride, and identifies Knoxville as a growing arts destination. By displaying sculptures outdoors, we celebrate not only the art but our natural beauty during this year-round exhibition. The sculptures presently on view have been selected and awarded by Justin Rabideau.

Where: Downtown Knoxville, McGhee Tyson Airport, and Oak Ridge
When: April 2, 2018-March 10, 2019

Public Vote: Scroll to the bottom of this page to submit a vote for your favorite sculpture by June 30, 2018!
