Metro Arts is hosting community engagement sessions with artist Gordon Huether. Earlier this year, a community selection panel selected Huether to develop and install a suspended public artwork in the new Old Hickory Community Center. Join us in October and share what you love about Old Hickory, its community, and what makes it special! Refreshments will be provided, and gift bags will be given to attendees who RSVP in advance.
ABOUT METRO ARTS
Metro Nashville Arts Commission or “Metro Arts” is the office of Arts + Culture for Nashville and Davidson County. We believe that arts drive a more vibrant and equitable community. We strive to ensure that all Nashvillians have access to a creative life through community investments, artist and organizational training, public art and creative placemaking coordination and direct programs that involve residents in all forms of arts and culture.
METRO ARTS IS FUNDED IN PART BY
The arts are getting cut from state budgets across America. In Tennessee, we are fortunate to have an additional source of funding. The extra revenue we receive from specialty and personalized license plate sales has been key to funding the arts in Tennessee. More than 70% of the money used to fund the 800+ grants from the Tennessee Arts Commission last year was from the sale of these specialty license plates.
