“Purple Heart,” a work made for my 2014 Cumberland Gallery exhibit, was recently added to the Music City Center art collection. Suspended between an office and a conference room, it now hangs in a glass walled niche that could have been designed for it.
Unconventional – Nashville’s Music City Center is a stunning 152-page book documenting the artwork found throughout Nashville’s new convention center. Through striking photography and informative essays it explores every work of art, making those of us privileged to be a part of the collection feel quite special!

It was an exciting April 1 as we installed On This Ground at Nashville’s dramatic new Music City Center. The 15 foot wide suspended sculpture has been in the works since last summer, drawing inspiration from the construction process itself. Metal objects salvaged from the site were used to create various rust imprints, while images abstracted from aerial photography were also layered into the work. Aerial images of the building’s foundation taken in May 2010, just after Nashville was flooded, are unexpectedly beautiful……as is a dreamy image of structural scaffolding.
We’ll be excited to see the many acquired and commissioned artworks forming Music City Center’s collection when the doors open in May!
