If you live here in Chattanooga, chances are you've seen the familiar silhouette of "The Watcher” - perhaps at the Hunter Museum, the Edwin Hotel, Sculpture Fields at Montague Park or here on our campus at UTC.

Jim Collins is the artist behind these distinctive figures.

Though he may be best known for his "Watcher" series, his portfolio demonstrates an impressive array of expression.

Tomorrow night at 8:30 PM, he’s the next guest on "The A List with Alison Lebovitz" from our public media partner WTCI PBS.
