ART IN PUBLIC PLACES

The Art in Public Places program brings art outside, adding character and beauty to our city streets and spaces.  The program includes an annually rotating, outdoor sculpture exhibition and a large-scale mural program that is entering its second year. The sculptures are installed in prominent locations throughout Knoxville, Oak Ridge, and Alcoa. Started in 2007 by Eddie Mannis and Bart Watkins, the Art in Public Places sculpture program has curated and installed over 240 works of art and gained national recognition as a platform for exhibiting world-class sculptors.

MURAL 

PROGRAM

The Art in Public Places Mural Program was established in 2019 to advance existing creative efforts in Strong Alley, transform unique public spaces in our community, provide opportunities for local and regional artists to create new artwork, and improve access to the arts for everyone. Dogwood Arts coordinates and directs this ongoing program in collaboration with artists, property owners, the City of Knoxville, and the Downtown Knoxville Alliance. 

1/4
 

To date, Dogwood Arts has funded the creation and restoration of 22 murals in Downtown Knoxville. Up to this point, efforts have primarily been focused in Strong Alley (between Market Square and Gay Street) which has been a popular canvas for artists and a creative destination for visitors and residents of the city for over a decade.

FEATURED ARTISTS

SARAH MOORE

Tennessee-based artist Sarah Moore makes paintings that are invitations into wild places. Her creative practice is rooted in her memories of a rural childhood roaming forests, fields, and rivers, and influenced by time spent exploring landscapes in 28 countries. Through her work and wanderings, she has sought to understand humans’ innate, culture-spanning need to connect with nature.

MEGAN LINGERFELT

Megan Lingerfelt uses oil and water based mediums to draft the intricate elements of man made forms.  Her work focuses on structures with repetition, deep shadows, and luminous reflections as a means to explore the relationships between object and user.  Discovering new paths for efficiency in order to streamline our lives, bit by bit we push and follow the industrial evolution.

 

She lives in Knoxville, TN.

CATHRYN BOZONE

Cathryn Bozone is a fine artist and designer based out of Atlanta, Georgia. Her passion for art started at a young age when she kept getting into trouble for doodling too much in grade school. Instead of stopping doing what she loved, she decided to turn it into a career and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from UWG in 2016. Her BFA is concentrated in Graphic Design and she often combines her digital design knowledge with her fine arts knowledge to optimize her creative processes. ​
