Chattanooga Art Museum’s walls and artworks are alive and breathing, and the work of Chattanooga’s rich artistic heritage continues to flourish.
The art museum walls are growing in size, and are becoming more than just a piece of art.
The walls are now the living, breathing work of art, with more than 1,000 murals and murals by artists ranging from local to international, said Art Gallery Director of Marketing, Linda Williams.
They are a testament to the community’s commitment to Chattanooga.
Art curator, Linda Davis, said, the art of Chattanooga is the heart and soul of the city and has an intrinsic connection to people’s lives.
Davis said, art can touch our hearts and bring people together.
She said the art is an expression of the community, and a reminder that we are all connected.
“I’ve been an art collector since I was 14 years old and the art in Chattanooga is one of my passions,” said Davis, adding, art and life are one in the same.
Art Gallery staff said the murals are being painted and polished by a local artist, and they will be the focus of the Art Museum at its next major exhibition, “The New Chattanooga: A New Art for New Chattanooga.”
Davis said the artists will be bringing new works from the Chattanooga region, including art from Nashville, Tennessee.
The Chattanooga Art museum is located at 1155 N. Main St. in downtown Chattanooga.
