The Guild

The Guild of the Knoxville Museum of Art was created in 1996 with the purpose to encourage participation and support for KMA as a cultural center for our area. The name "The Guild" was taken to honor the former organization, The Dulin Gallery of Art Guild, which promoted art in the East Tennessee region.
