Dogwood Arts partners with the Muse Knoxville to produce Art Slam at the Dogwood Arts Festival. Art Slam is a live art competition among Knoxville’s up and coming artists. Artists have 3 hours to paint an extra large artwork with a colorful and inspiring design. We have painted doors, canvases and adirondack chairs. There are no design limits, but each artwork must celebrate the art, culture and natural beauty of our region. Details

Each year The Muse teams up with local community partners to offer special discounts and giveaways to Muse Membership holders. This special month allows us to say ‘Thank You’ to all the families who have invested in The Muse and it allows local businesses to reach out directly to this important demographic (families with young children) in our area.   Details
