About Arts Knoxville - Contact Us


Arts Knoxville is the source for news and commentary on the art and music scene in Knoxville. It depends on support and advertising from readers and sponsors for its continuation.

Arts Knoxville was created by Alan Sherrod in 2014 in response to the closure of the alternative weekly Metro Pulse, a publication on which he had been the classical music writer since 2007. When the Knoxville Mercury was launched by former Metro Pulse editors and writers in March 2015, he continued with that alt-weekly as classical/new music writer until its unfortunate closure in July 2017. With the goal of maintaining the arts journalism legacy of those alt-weeklies, Arts Knoxville was expanded and redesigned in August of 2017 into the site that exists today. Arts Knoxville welcomes inquiries from writers interested in contributing content.
