Grand Opening of Murfree Gallery

A unique and historic partnership between the Rutherford County Property Assessor’s Office and the MTSU Department of Art has created the new Murfree Gallery for community art exhibits. The gallery's first exhibit, scheduled from Nov. 22 through Jan. 30, 2014, includes students from the MTSU Department of Art and several noteworthy community artists.

The gallery opening is being marked by a special reception, which will include brief remarks from MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee, Rutherford County Property Assessor Rob Mitchell and Rutherford County Mayor Ernest Burgess. The new Murfree Gallery is named for the family of Revolutionary War hero Col. Hardy Murfree, for whom the city of Murfreesboro was renamed in 1811.
