Our Town Project

Our Town is an on-going community public art project during which local artist Bryce McCloud will collect and exhibit portraits of Nashvillians from all walks of life via his mobile printmaking “art cart". Traveling to various community events and locations, McCloud and his participants will develop a series of prints “made by Nashvillians for Nashvillians.” When a citizen approaches the cart and participates by creating a portrait, they will be able to exchange their portrait for another individual’s print portrait. Featured prints are displayed and exchanged during the cart outings and will be part of a permanent collection at the end of the project.
