Public Collectors consists of informal agreements where collectors allow the contents of their collection to be published and permit those who are curious to directly experience the objects in person. Participants must be willing to type up an inventory of their collection, provide a means of contact and share their collection with the public.
Public Collectors is particularly seeking collectors in the Tennessee area who would be willing to talk about, loan, present or otherwise display their collection(s) at the The Art Gallery of Knoxville throughout the Summer of 2008. Ideally, Public Collectors would like to encourage you to make your collection accessible to interested parties beyond the length of a short-term gallery exhibit. Collections need not consist of items that are rare, valuable, or classified as “art.” Small, focused collections are welcome, as are large unwieldy accumulations.
