Currently on display is Unstructured Rise by Knoxville artist Alyssa Imes from June 6th – September 23rd, 2022
The art installation, Unstructured Rise, features a variety of materials including textiles and cast iron that highlight Alyssa’s approach to creating a multi-media experience for her viewers. Imes’ work is about personal connections and social interactions that open new doors and which create a network of emotional relationships. Imes’ focus is to spread awareness of growth after trauma. “Unstructured Rise” serves as a retrospective of Imes’ work as an artist.
