Saturdays at Todd

Saturdays at Todd is a faculty led initiative designed to expand our community engagement in and around Murfreesboro. The events are free and open to the public with all materials provided as tools to build greater advocacy for the arts in middle Tennessee!  Students and faculty, and community artists participate and lead demonstrations. They answer questions and offer insight into context, technique, and concept. We host exhibit openings in our main gallery that are also scheduled on Saturdays to encourage community and alumni attendance while providing greater access to our facilities and programs! All activities include all ages in interactive workshops, lectures, and exhibits. Through open discussion about artwork and the role of the artist in communities, we can demonstrate the importance of arts education while fostering a culture of support for the Arts in Tennessee. TBA information will be updated as events are finalized throughout the semester.
