Tri-Star Arts

Exhibition Projects + Speakers

WHO ARE WE?

Tri-Star Arts produces annual contemporary art exhibition projects in Tennessee with a rotating statewide schedule. Additionally, our speaker series brings contemporary visual arts professionals to Tennessee to engage with the community through public talks, Q&A sessions, and speaker-selected studio visits.

Tri-Star Arts serves Tennessee by spotlighting and growing the contemporary visual art scenes in each region and fostering a unified statewide art scene. Our programs promote art dialogue between the different cities in the state, and between the state and the nation.

Find our web resource, LocateArts.org, and our inaugural Tennessee Triennial for Contemporary Art, TennesseeTriennial.org.

*Our annual exhibitions and speakers were formerly housed under the name Seed Space, an organization founded by Adrienne Outlaw with exhibitions curated by Rachel Bubis. Our merger with Seed Space occurred in December 2016.
