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 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.

Presented by Cultural Arts, Visualize Murfreesboro, the annual Greenway Art Festival, will take place VIRTUALLY this year, and will run, September 19 – October 1, 2020.   As always, we are looking forward to another excellent celebration of accomplished artists in and around Rutherford County and beyond!

Thank you for your continued support of the Greenway Art Festival. Like you, we have been carefully monitoring the COVID-19 Pandemic and how it relates to an outdoor festival. We concluded that we cannot guarantee an outdoor festival that is completely safe for all artists and patrons at this time. For this reason, we decided to host a Virtual Greenway Art Festival. We are still firmly committed to supporting the hard work and creativity that has been reflective of our Greenway Art Festival applicants for over a decade.

ELIGIBLE WORK

Artist selection will continue to be juried based on subject, overall quality, originality, and presentation. All original fine art is eligible, including but not limited to printmaking, bookbinding, fiber art, painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture. All work must be original and created by the artist. The festival director reserves the right to select pictures to be posted in the E-book and may request additional pictures of your art for selection.
