The Hunter Museum At 70

In downtown Chattanooga, on the bluff overlooking the Walnut St. Bridge and the Tennessee River, stands the Hunter Museum of American Art.

Opened in 1952, the Hunter today is acclaimed as one of best mid-sized art museums in the country.

Its collection of 3,000 works lives within the walls of the Hunter's three buildings, which represent a century of architecture.

To mark the Hunter's anniversary in 2022, Scenic Roots presented this conversation series - "The Hunter Museum at 70" - in collaboration with the Museum.

Follow the Hunter online at huntermuseum.org - and on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
