The Knoxville Museum of Art (KMA) presents the artists and their work of East Tennessee. The museum predecessor, Dulin Gallery of Art, opened in 1961. By the the existing building, located near downtown Knoxville is a 53,200 square-foot facility, designed by renowned museum architect Edward Larrabee Barnes.

KMA offers an engaging schedule of exhibitions, and more recently has also begun to focus on the rich visual traditions of the surrounding region. The basis of this initiative is the permanent installation, Higher Ground: A Century of the Visual Arts in East Tennessee. Opened in 2008, the installation constitutes a milestone in the museum’s history and gives way to a growing awareness of and pride in the area’s cultural history. The museum collection of paintings, works on paper and sculpture focus on East Tennessee artists and contemporary art from the area.
