Indoor sculptures comprising all styles and genres from emerging and established artists were selected by nationally recognized juror, Durant Thompson, for exhibition at the University of Tennessee's Downtown Gallery. The 2013 co-chairs of the NEXUS exhibition committee are Jason S. Brown and Brian R. Jobe.
