Description:

In March 1990, the Knoxville Museum of Art opened in its current 53,200 square-foot facility, designed by renowned American architect Edward Larrabee Barnes. The exterior of the four-story steel and concrete building, named in honor of Jim Clayton, the largest single contributor to its construction, is sheathed in locally-quarried beautiful pink Tennessee marble. Finding a more grand building celebrating the local culture and colors of East Tennessee is impossible. The museum features a permanent, monumental glass installation by acclaimed Knoxville artist Richard Jolley, which is the largest figural glass installation in the world. Pristine new terrazzo cover the second and third level floors. The Ann and Steve Bailey Hall, is perfect for a modern, classy indoor wedding. The Sarah Jane Hardrath Kramer Education Center, Auditorium, and Whittle Board Room are for smaller, intimate, private weddings, all promising the artistic touch of the museum’s staff. The gardens are available for a quaint, modern outdoor wedding. Plan your unique, artsy wedding at the Knoxville Museum of Art and choose quirky art displays to decorate your venue and delicate floral centerpieces to make your ceremony just breathtaking. Sip on champagne under the blue and purple lighting of the Grand Hall as you take in the views of the iconic World’s Fair Park.
