Murals of North Nashville Now
Editor(s): Kathryn E. Delmez
The Frist Art Museum and Vanderbilt University Press have partnered to copublish Murals of North Nashville Now. The publication includes plates of the eight murals in the exhibition of the same name, along with images of public mural installations in North Nashville. The book features an essay on North Nashville and its history by Dr. Learotha Williams Jr., associate professor of African American and public history at Tennessee State University. Williams also runs the North Nashville Heritage Project. Kathryn E. Delmez, curator of the accompanying exhibition, edited the volume, considering the murals from both art-historical and community-engagement-driven perspectives. Susan H. Edwards, executive director and CEO of the Frist Art Museum, wrote the foreword and acknowledgments.
Generous support from various community leaders will allow the book to be placed in all Davidson County public schools and libraries, and to be presented to members of the Nashville Metropolitan Council and Tennessee General Assembly.
