“Preserving the past, engaging the present and nurturing the future of Middle Tennessee by stimulating diverse creative expression, positive encouragement and quality, regional opportunities for Arts & Humanities access and instruction.”
The Tullahoma Art Center is an ADA/504/Title VI-compliant facility committed to the development of quality cultural experiences and education by providing access to and instruction in the Arts and Humanities, and influencing the direction of area visual, literary, performing and creative arts.
TAC, above all, encourages professionalism in the artistic community and among its artists and students, thereby raising standards of excellence in creativity, design and the production and practice of cultural craftsmanship.
We promote the development of arts programming opportunities by offering classes,
demonstrations, performances, publications and exhibitions.
We have expanded our Member Gallery so that members may display and/or sell their original works — creating unique marketing opportunities for them to reach local, regional and national audiences.
We strive to increase public experience, understanding, appreciation and awareness of (as well as access to) the Arts and Humanities, especially in the under-served and disenfranchised.
TAC seeks to strengthen our existing Regional Art Museum and lending library by encouraging donations of books, works of art and the endowment of funds to secure further permanent collections of both.
Finally, we are firmly committed to partnering with civic organizations, other non-profits, city, county and state governments to further our mission.
We are actively exploring ways to assist area school systems with their Arts and Humanities curricula, providing both extracurricular and co-curricular opportunities for gifted and talented students as well as for the academically and economically disadvantaged.
