The Knoxville Museum of Art celebrates the art and artists of East Tennessee.

Since its opening in 1990, the KMA has presented a lively and engaging schedule of exhibitions. Higher Ground, the first permanent exhibition devoted to East Tennessee’s artistic achievements, includes objects from the KMA collection supplemented by important works borrowed from public and private collections. Higher Ground allows viewers to follow the history of artistic activity in the region over roughly a century of development and learn about the many exceptionally gifted individuals who have helped shape the area’s visual arts tradition.

The Knoxville Museum of Art is also home to the monumentally scaled sculpture by Knoxville resident and internationally acclaimed artist Richard Jolley, Cycle of Life: Within the Power of Dreams and the Wonder of Infinity. The sculpture is one of the largest figurative glass-and-steel assemblages in the world and will remain on permanent view at the museum.
