Thursday, June 29 at the Foundry at World’s Fair Park from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
KHP’s annual luncheon celebrates the city’s history and culture and serves as our signature fundraising event of the year, generating more than $30,000 towards KHP’s annual budget.
Our 2023 honoree is UT Professor Emeritus of art history Fred Moffatt who has been documenting the cultural history of Knoxville for more than half a century. He contributed a chapter on art for Heart of the Valley (ETHS, 1976), Knoxville’s seminal historical text, and has written exhibition catalogues for the Knoxville Museum of Art. His recent books include, The Life, Art, and Times of Joseph Delaney, 1904-1991 (UT Press, 2009), and Paintbrush for Hire: The Travels of James and Emma Cameron, 1840-1900 (UT Press, 2018).
Prof. Moffatt will be in conversation with KHP’s Jack Neely at the event.
