Cheekwood invites public to create work of art

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Nashville’s Cheekwood art museum and botanical gardens is inviting the public to participate in a new work of art.

Rivane Neuenschwander’s (ree-VAN’-ee NOY’-en-shwan-derz) “First Love” will be created from the individual memories and personal histories of its audience.

Visitors are invited to set up appointments for one-on-one meetings where they will be asked to describe their first loves from memory. The result will be a collection of sketches that will be displayed at the museum.

“First Love” is part of the exhibition “More Love: Art, Politics and Sharing Since the 1990s,” opening Sept. 20.

More Love brings together works by nearly 30 artists working in a range of media and explores the many ways contemporary artists have addressed the subject of love.
