Our Town Nashville: Field Reports
November 26, 2014 – April 12, 2015
Main Library, Courtyard Gallery
Actively engaging Nashville in a conversation about community, Our Town creates a space where people unlikely to otherwise participate in art-making or interact with those outside of their circle can connect through their experience as participants in the project. Come see a portrait of Nashville!
Paper, Thread, and Trash
December 6, 2014 – March 29, 2015
Main Library, Art Gallery
In Paper, Thread, and Trash, fourteen Tennessee artists address these issues of consumption and waste by using found and superfluous materials to build original and unique books through very literal interpretations to installations and conceptually-based projects. These works of art challenge the artists and viewers to look at our waste in new ways.
Opening reception from 2-4pm on Saturday, December 6.
