McClung Museum curator Catherine Shteynberg will be the moderator. Photo submitted.

Four of the 28 artists featured in the “Drawn from the McClung Museum” exhibit will be on hand for the panel discussion, which will highlight the artists’ choices and process, and the nature of the exhibition itself. “Drawn” pairs selected objects from the McClung’s collections with prints examining these objects in order to understand how art, science and culture are perceived and interpreted in museums.

The panel discussion, which will be in the museum’s temporary gallery, is free and open to the public.

The McClung Museum is at 1327 Circle Park Drive. Admission is free, and the museum’s hours are 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 1-5 p.m. Sunday.

Free two-hour museum parking passes are available from the parking information building at the entrance to Circle Park Drive on weekdays. Free public transportation is available via the Knoxville Trolley Vol Line.
