You begin your museum experience in a spacious lobby with walls of handmade brick and floors of Tennessee quartzite.  A fountain of marble and travertine is centered under the domed ceiling and is crowned by The Vine (left), a bronze statue of a woman dancing, sculpted by American artist Harriet Whitney Frishmuth, circa 1923.

Below is again the main floor plan of the museum.  Click in the Green-Audigler Gallery as we continue our VIRTUAL TOUR!
