Very interesting art in a lovely, airy space. We enjoyed meeting the wonderful staff in the gift shop as well. An amazing venue for art considering the size of the city of Knoxville.

Nice small museum. Very friendly staff and helpful. Be sure to see the miniatures on the lower level. They have a Ansel Adams print not to miss.
