The Art in Public Places exhibit, part of the 2014 Dogwood Arts Festival, started being visible this week in Krutch Park in downtown Knoxville. The first six of the ultimately 25 monumental pieces of art have been installed.
The plaques with the artists’ names and the titles of the pieces have not been put up yet, but I thought folks might want to get a sneak peek at them. I love them — although, I have to admit, I do not understand most of them. Perhaps the titles will give a clue when we get to see them.
This is the eighth year of the Art in Public Places exhibit. It is a juried show, judged by sculptor Kenneth Thompson. Eight thousand dollars in prizes will be awarded, including a $3,000 Best of Show prize. The show officially opens April 4 with an awards ceremony.
