What: Knoxville History Project Art Wraps Program on Magnolia Avenue

 

When:  Tuesday, October 29, 2019 5:30- 6:30PM

 

Where: Pellissippi State Technical Community College (Magnolia Avenue Campus-Community Room)

 

 

The Knoxville History Project (KHP) has partnered with the City of Knoxville’s Office of Neighborhoods and Redevelopment to expand its Downtown Art Wraps program by introducing public art along the model block section of the Magnolia Avenue Streetscapes Project. 

 

Streetscape improvements along Magnolia Avenue span from Jessamine Street to N. Bertrand St and includes four (4) new traffic signal control boxes. KHP has suggested several notable artworks by Knoxville artists from the past to enhance the area by adding new art wraps on the on the new traffic signal boxes.

 

This Open House will present KHP’s available artwork supported by the Public Arts Committee along with a series of suggested archive photographs and images, including four historical photographs provided by the Beck Cultural Exchange Center.

 

KHP and City Staff will share information on the program and discuss the process to seek community input to help expand the collection. Over time, the city hopes to extend the art wrap program further along Magnolia Avenue and other locations throughout the community.
