Beck Cultural Exhange Center to open museum honoring Knoxville artists

in Art/Places

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — The Beck Cultural Exchange Center is working to create a new international museum to celebrate black artists from Knoxville. When members of The Beck Cultural Exchange Center were working to purchase the home that was right next door to their building, they weren’t aware of the history that lay within.

Now, they’re hoping to open its doors for the world to experience a piece of Knoxville History. If you drive by 1935 Dandridge Avenue, you’ll see an old boarded-up home. Many wouldn’t think twice when passing by.
