Created as an opportunity to recognize the artistic accomplishments of Metro Nashville Public School students, the Mayor’s Art Show was launched by Mayor Phil Bredesen during the 1990s. The Frist Art Museum began hosting this annual art show in 2004 during Mayor Bill Purcell’s term and is continuing the tradition with Mayor Megan Barry.
Art teachers at each school selected two works per grade level for inclusion in the exhibition. The variety of images and subject matter reflects the diverse backgrounds and ideas of Metro schoolchildren.
