The Metropolitan Nashville Arts Commission has chosen as its next public art project "Witness Walls," a concept developed by North Carolina artist Walter Hood and that will rise on the west side of the Metro Courthouse. The series of stamped concrete wall fragments will feature images culled from the Nashville Public Library's Civil Rights Reading Room and be accompanied by some fountains and audio.

The Nashville Symphony has received some financial breathing space courtesy of Taylor Swift, who on Friday delivered a $100,000 check to the organization. The move is a positive cap to a year that featured a wholesale financial restructuring, layoffs and pay cuts. But local musicians union president Dave Pomeroy says there's a lot more work to be done.
“Now is the time for all the citizens of Nashville to step forward and support our world class orchestra in its time of need. Taylor Swift has set a great example and I hope that others will follow her lead and help ensure that the Nashville Symphony musicians’ salaries can be restored as soon as possible. This is an incredible start,” Pomeroy said.
