There's no doubting that Brentwood residents appreciate art and imagination, as several public spaces feature works created by local artists. In addition to offering support, the artful displays brighten frequented areas and showcase just how creative this community can be.
Pinnacle Financial Partners
Several Brentwood/Cool Springs businesses exhibit art and purchase it to form a permanent collection. That has always been part of the business plan at Pinnacle Financial Partners, which has collected more than 500 original works since opening its doors in downtown Nashville in 2001.Pinnacle purposefully selects some of those pieces from Williamson County artists so it can support the community. The Brentwood office also partners with various local galleries for nine annual exhibits that are rotated among its different locations, and it also uses local artwork for holiday cards and other correspondence sent to clients.
Making art a part of the community has long been a tradition at the Brentwood Library. Paintings, sculptures and other works from regional artists can be found on the gallery wall and in a glass display case.
Eleven exhibits are featured annually, and each month a different artist is featured on the gallery wall. The committee limits its focus to local artists' work most of the time. The goal is to present as many types of art as possible, knowing that one person's favorite abstract will look like paint smears to someone else.
Brentwood Academy is proud of the artwork created by its students, as well as the community. Galleries showcasing the artwork are featured throughout the school's campus, including the middle school and upper school lobbies, the gallery in the Yellow House (the school's visual arts center) and the hallways of the Fine Arts Center.
Brentwood Academy also displays a permanent collection of paintings and other artwork from local artists in administrative areas, entrances and lobbies in the school's buildings.
FiftyForward Martin Center
Another place that features local artwork is Brentwood's FiftyForward Martin Center. In addition to offering art programs and classes to its members, the center also hosts events such as Zoe's Gallery of Friends, an annual art exhibition and sale with works from more than 40 local artists.
