Current pieces on display were submitted by area artists, including Thomas Cory, Lupina Poi Haney, Spears McAllester, Margaret Park and many others.

“This show is one of our most comprehensive yet,” said Martica Lambiase, co-chair of Arts at Erlanger. “We have beautiful art, all from local artists, including photography from a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer, Robin Hood, and colorful, graphic styled posters from Riverbend with autographs from the artists who performed each year.”

The “Tennessee Music” art show is on display at the Erlanger Baroness hospital in the Gallery Corridor, adjacent to the D elevators, now through April 20. 

Many of the pieces or copies are available for purchase, as well as copies from the permanent art collection on display throughout Erlanger East Hospital. The permanent art collection at Erlanger East Hospital was curated by the Arts at Erlanger program and has been recognized nationally.
