Journalist Robert K Oermann, Artist Anna Jaap Team For Exhibit Highlighting Nashville’s Hidden HistoriesPrint This Post
A new exhibit highlighting unique locations in Nashville’s history, “Hiding In Plain Sight,” will open at the Nashville Library with a special reception Feb. 18 in the Courtyard Gallery from 3-5 p.m. Nashville artist Anna Jaap and journalist/MusicRow contributor Robert K. Oermann collaborated on the new exhibit of photos and stories of hidden historical locations that were inspired from the nearly three decades that Nashville resident Oermann spent driving, studying, and researching Music City’s history.
Portrait subjects include homes where Hank Williams and Patsy Cline once resided, Grand Ole Opry founder George D. Hay’s home, churches with Civil Rights Movement history, Nashville’s first auto factory, and the spot where Lay’s Potato Chips were once made.
“Celebrating great art and artists is part of Nashville Public Library’s mission to connect our community,” said Library Director Kent Oliver. “We are pleased to showcase these portraits that give viewers such insight into our city.”
