Art galleries and theater, renowned musicians, international visitors and book signings; that’s what’s expected from the streets of New York City, not the fields of McNairy County. Yet, since 1998, Arts in McNairy (AiM) has been a center for fostering the arts and arts appreciation in McNairy County.
McNairy County is home to some of the finest visual and folk and craft artists in West Tennessee. AiM strives to promote local artists and fine crafters, allowing artists to exhibit their work regularly in the gallery of the McNairy County Visitor’s and Cultural Center, or “the Latta” as the locals call it.
The Latta is a historic building known for its music history. It now boasts a 200-seat theater with state-of-the-art lighting and sound system and an art gallery. It’s been AiM’s home since 2012.
So much more than corn and cotton flows from McNairy County fields. Arts in McNairy helps develop and preserve local arts culture and nurture artists, from professionals to amateurs and everyone in-between. We celebrate the enriching influence art has on our daily lives with both airport
visitors and our county community.
Arts at the Airport receives funding for the visual arts from the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority (MNAA) and the Tennessee Arts Commission (TAC). The Flying Solo Exhibition Series is funded under an agreement with TAC. For more information about Arts at the Airport, please call (615) 275-1614 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
