The Knoxville Museum of Art has unveiled a site-specific light installation by San Antonio-based artist Bill FitzGibbons. The work consists of programmed LED lights placed along the KMA's north facade that transforms the building into a shifting canvas of colored light every night through the end of 2010.

Knoxville Colorline is presented in conjunction with Filament, an exhibition at the University of Tennessee’s Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture that features the sculpture of FitzGibbons and mixed media work by fellow artist Creighton Michael.

FitzGibbons received his BFA from the University of Tennessee and has become internationally known for his large-scale public art projects. In 1991 FitzGibbons was selected as a Fulbright Scholar for the Hungarian Art Academy in Budapest. He has been the Executive Director of the Blue Star Contemporary Art Center since the summer of 2002 and serves on the board of directors of the International Sculpture Center.
