In April 2018, Discovery Center will open We Are Tennessee, an exhibit exploring concepts of our state’s cultural identity and what it means to be a Tennessean.
Artists of all ages and mediums from Tennessee are invited to submit their work exploring the theme through representations of the people of Tennessee.
Visual artists may approach this call through any medium; however, only a hi-resolution print of visual art (produced at the cost of the Discovery Center) will be displayed for the exhibit. Written work and multimedia files will be accepted.
Ginny Togrye is Murfreesboro’s painter laureate this year and she is undertaking this project. Her vision is to create a mural using artists’ concepts of identity. Each depiction of a Tennessean will be woven into a universal tapestry that celebrates the traditions, identity, and culture of Tennessee.
