My family enjoy visiting the museum a few times a year. The exhibits usually change every few months and its just overall a refreshing experience. This is no charge but they really appreciate any donations.

Knoxville is not a large city as cities go but it's art scene is one of the most vibrant we've seen. From KMA to the Emporium, if you like art, you'll be right at home in K'ville.

Attended a charity event there a couple of weeks back and was not as impressed as I would've liked to been. The table layout for the event was obstructed by the stairs and need for affective traffic flow. Great location but the parking is a...More
