The Knoxville Museum of Art collects works of art of the highest quality in all media from circa 1900 to the present with an emphasis on those representing the most significant recent developments and with greatest local and regional relevance.
The collection includes approximately 700 objects representing 20th- and 21st-century works on paper, paintings, mixed media works, sculpture, and fine craft. It continues to grow through gifts from noted artists, galleries, collectors, and foundations, and purchases funded by the Collectors Circle of important works by artists of regional and international significance.
Internationally-known artists represented in the collection include David Bates, Charles Burchfield, Tomory Dodge, Robert Longo, Loretta Lux, Dante Marioni, William Morris, Kenneth Snelson, to cite just a few. Choice examples by Catherine Wiley, Lloyd Branson, Joseph Delaney, Walter Stevens, Carl Sublett, Whitney Leland, Richard Jolley, Andrew Saftel and Bessie Harvey represent the development of the visual arts in Eastern Tennessee over the past century.
The Brooks’ collection of works on paper consists of more than 5,000 prints, drawings, photographs, and artists’ books. It spans nearly six centuries but is strongest in early-20th century American works. These collections are periodically displayed in the permanent collection galleries and in smaller thematic presentations throughout the museum.
The Frist Center opened in April 2001, and since that time has hosted a spectacular array of art from the region, the country, and around the world. Unlike any traditional museum you’ve ever visited, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts has become a magnet for Nashville’s rapidly expanding visual arts scene. With an exhibitions schedule that has new art flowing through the magnificent Art Deco building every 6 to 8 weeks, no matter how often you visit, there is always something new and exciting to see in the spacious galleries
