Murfreesboro Art Committee
The Murfreesboro Art Committee is responsible for advancing the awareness and support of our visual arts resources in Murfreesboro and for scheduling exhibitions of community artists and artists of local interest in the rotunda of City Hall, city schools, parks and other facilities.  The committee is also responsible for encouraging gifts of art to the city. The committee consists of seven members who are appointed for three-year terms.  The committee was created by Resolution of the City Council on August 15, 1991.

Artwork Showcase
The City Hall rotunda offers artists an ideal forum to showcase their work with more than 606 square feet in the main round of the rotunda, and another 550-plus square feet along the stairways. The open two-story ceiling with indirect natural light and fluorescent lighting work together to perfectly highlight the artist's talent.

City Hall is located at 111 West Vine Street, Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

Current exhibit:
Artist and Teacher Susan Truex presents “Pencils and Paint: A Student Retrospective”

The student art show displays the works of adult art students who have been taking drawing and painting workshops with Susan Truex, an artist and art teacher at Moxie Art Supply in downtown Murfreesboro, TN.  The students have been encouraged to develop their own work and style, working from photographs or from life.  This collection of works demonstrates a vast aray of creative expression from portraiture, still life, landscape, abstraction and non-representational work.  After more than 16 years, Susan Truex retired from teaching at the end of April to concentrate on her own studio work and, for her, this exhibit is symbolic of her farewell to a profession that she has loved and to the individuals she has loved.


Exhibits in the Rotunda are free and open to the public between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except for observed holidays. City Hall is located at 111 West Vine Street, Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

For questions about the exhibit and reception contact City Hall: 615-893-5210.
