November 9, 2011 8:29 AM by Erin Donovan
Visitors might have their opinion of East Tennessee before coming to tour the area, however, one unique way to see and learn more about our region is through another’s eyes. The Knoxville Museum of Art is a great way to view East Tennessee’s past and present from the vantage point of an artist. For the past 21 years, the museum has not only provided visually stunning artwork for visitors to view in their 53,200 square foot facility, but they also continue to offer concerts, classroom programs, lectures, and family activities. Families can make an afternoon excursion to the museum free of charge and browse through current, permanent and temporary exhibits. From observing Higher Ground: A Century of Visual Arts in East Tennessee exhibit to learning more about the region’s growing contemporary art focus, there is a piece of work for every visitor’s taste. Browse paintings, sculptures and mixed media objects while walking through the halls. www.knoxart.org.
