The Knoxville Museum of Art presents the second annual Sarah Jane Hardrath Kramer art lecture on Wednesday, April 1 at 6pm in the museum’s auditorium. The event is free and open to the public but reservations are recommended.

This year’s speaker, Tom Otterness, is one of America’s most celebrated sculptors. His whimsical figures enliven public parks and cities around the world, most notably New York City at Rockefeller Park and in the 14th Street/8th Avenue subway station. Otterness is included in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Israel Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

The lecture series honors the memory of Sarah Jane Hardrath Kramer and her many years of tireless, enthusiastic, and dedicated service to the Dulin Gallery of Art and the Knoxville Museum of Art. The event is made possible by the Sarah Jane Hardrath Kramer Fund and is supported by The Rogers Foundation, The Melrose Foundation, and Wayne R. Kramer.
