Creating Traditions, Expanding Horizons
Author: Carroll Van West,Margaret Duncan Binnicker
"This illustrated book, cosponsored by the Tennessee Arts Commission and the Tennessee Historical Society, covers the varieties of art in Tennessee in five parts. The visual arts and architecture section includes chapters on vernacular and high style architecture, sculpture, painting and photography, while the section on craft arts celebrates folk arts such as woodcraft, silversmithing, pottery, and textiles. The section on Tennessee's rich literary history includes such writers as James Agee, Robert Penn Warren, and Evelyn Scott, while the performing arts are represented by a wealth of storytellers along with two centuries of stage history. Finally, Tennessee is home to - and originator of - much of the music that we know as distinctively American. Contributors to the music section examine gospel, blues, rock, soul, and, of course, country music."--BOOK JACKET.
