CCA And TVFCU Partner To Provide Artistic Tabletops For Riverbend

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Visual art students from Chattanooga High School Center for Creative Arts, in partnership with Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union, present the 2017 collection of bistro tables featuring original student artwork.  

Displayed during the Riverbend festival at the TVFCU stage underneath the Walnut Street Bridge, these tables were created in a variety of artistic styles by both middle and high school students to celebrate all the wonders and natural beauty of the outdoors.  

Students designed and executed the original artwork to celebrate their unique visions of aquatic themed paintings. 

Please contact CCA if interested in the purchase of a tabletop.
