NASHVILLE | JUNE 22, 2023 —
A citizen selection panel composed of Old Hickory residents recently chose artist Gordon Huether to create a public artwork for the new Old Hickory Community Center. The panel selected Huether after reviewed a strong pool of candidates who applied to the call to artists. This recommendation was approved at the Arts Commission’s May meeting.
With a $250,000 artist budget, Huether will design, fabricate, and install an interior suspended permanent public artwork for the new community center, due to be completed in 2024 and which will replace the existing community center at 1050 Donelson Avenue. Huether has completed over 70 public art commissions worldwide and has worked with a variety of media including glass, steel, salvaged materials, resins, and composed materials. This summer, he will be in Nashville to meet with Old Hickory residents whose input will help shape the artwork’s design.
