Historic Greenwood Mural on Exhibition

Greenwood Mural

Originally Printed by Tennessee Today - The 28-foot historic mural that has survived controversy, vandalism and an impending demolition of its longtime home will be featured in an exhibit that opens June 6 at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville's, Downtown Gallery.

The “History of Tennessee” painting—also known as the Greenwood Mural—will be on display along with 18 other works by celebrated muralist Marion Greenwood. The 60-year-old, 300-pound oil-on-canvas work hung in the ballroom of UT’s Carolyn P. Brown University Center from 1954 until last July. It was removed in anticipation of the building’s demolition to make room for a new student union.
