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.
