The centerpiece of Nashville’s Centennial Park, this full-scale re-creation of the ancient Greek Parthenon was built in 1897
as part of the city’s Centennial Exposition. The recently renovated building now serves as Nashville’s city art museum and
features two galleries exhibiting American art from the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as temporary shows and exhibits.
In addition to the artwork, the building also houses a 41-foot-tall statue of the Greek goddess Athena, sculpted by Tennessee
artist Alan LeQuire in 1990.
