Thank you for your interest in showcasing at the Rotunda of Murfreesboro's City Hall! 


Art in the Rotunda of Murfreesboro's City Hall is maintained by Cultural Arts, Visualize Murfreesboro and the Murfreesboro Art Committee (MAC). The committee consists of seven members who are appointed for three-year terms. The committee was created by Resolution of the City Council on August 15, 1991.
