Art on display in mayors’ offices

More than 60 works of art are on display in the office and anteroom of Knoxville City Mayor Madeline Rogero and in the hallway outside of Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett’s offices. The work will be displayed through May 2017.

“This exhibition is fun to arrange because we do not impose a particular theme or color-scheme,” said Liza Zenni, Executive Director of the Arts & Culture Alliance. “We simply include works that look best together as a whole and that complement the surroundings.”

The fresh mix of artwork includes oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, mixed media, photography, fiber, sculpture, and more from regional artists who are all individual members of the Arts & Culture Alliance, which serves and supports a diverse community of artists, arts organizations, and cultural institutions.

Most of the works in the mayors’ offices exhibition are for sale and may be purchased through the close of the exhibition.

Although the Mayor Rogero’s office isn’t open to the public for regular viewing, the anterooms and the other works on display on the 6th floor of the City-County Building are open Monday-Friday, 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM.
