Nashville Street Art (title TBA)
DATES ARE NOT FINAL
Conte Community Arts Gallery
In recent years, as the Nashville area rapidly grows and changes, a vibrant street art community has flourished. New murals can now be seen across the city, including on a silo in The Nations, walls in North Nashville, and buildings along Nolensville Road, the Gulch, 12 South, and many other neighborhoods. The exhibition celebrates this emergence and will feature site-specific murals created by several local artists, as well as a collaborative community mural that the public will be invited to participate in making. The project explores what role the arts play in urban redevelopment and in the expression of neighborhood and individual identities, further testifying that art can be found all around us, not just inside museums and galleries.
Organized by the Frist Art Museum
