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.

Current members and their terms are listed in the directory of boards and commissions. All meetings are open to the public. For more information, contact Committee Liaison Jennifer Moody.

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. 

Exhibits in the rotunda are free and open to the public between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except observed holidays. City Hall is located at 111 West Vine Street, Murfreesboro, Tennessee. View our current and future exhibit schedules by at the links provided below.
