Downtown Arts Wraps take plain traffic engineering boxes and turns them into stunning canvasses portraying the artwork of some of the important Knoxville or East Tennessee artists from the past. Art Wraps engage the public (residents and visitors) to discover the city’s rich artistic heritage and explore the gems that are contained in our local museums and historic collections.
Each colorful wrap is enhanced with an interpretive panel featuring a photograph of the artist and a short biography describing the artist’s local connections.
Art Wraps feature artists highlighted in the Knoxville Museum of Art’s ongoing exhibition, Higher Ground: A Century of the Visual Arts in East Tennessee including Catherine Wiley, Charles Krutch, Carl Sublett, Robert Birdwell, Albert Milani, C. Kermit “Buck” Ewing, and Beauford Delaney.
Other public and private collections will feature the likes of Carl Sublett, Joseph Knaffl, Harry Ijams, and others.
