Last week to see two Austin Peay professors’ work at Cheekwood 

You have until Sept. 20 to see the work of two Austin Peay State University professors in a pandemic-themed exhibit at Cheekwood Estate & Gardens in Nashville.

Cheekwood’s “@home” exhibit invites people to “reflect upon the past, observe the present and hope for the future” as they navigate the works of four Nashville artists as they encountered the pandemic.

The artists include Austin Peay’s Paul Collins and Alex Blau. Collins is an associate professor at APSU, and Blau is an adjunct professor at APSU who also teaches at Vanderbilt University.

The other artists in the exhibit are Nuveen Barwari and KJ Schumacher. You can read more about the artists and the exhibit at https://cheekwood.org/calendar/at-home.
