Peter Max Exhibit to Open in Nashville 

A sweeping art exhibition showcasing decades of work from renowned pop artist Peter Max will be featured at the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville from March 16 through May 20.

The retrospective, entitled "Peter Max: Maximum Exposure," features more than 80 works created in various media. The exhibition takes visitors through Max's psychedelic art of the 60s to his patriotic themes of the 80s and into his current period of pop and modern art. In addition, Max's special tribute to all things musical -- chosen specifically for the Tennessee audience -- will be on view.

"We are thrilled to have Peter Max back at the Tennessee State Museum," said Lois Riggins-Ezzell, executive director of the museum. (In 1993, the museum hosted an exhibition of Max's work called "Peter Max: From Pop to Patriotism.") "His work continues to endure and speaks to the spirit of new generations, as well as to the baby-boomers who have grown up with his explosively-colorful artwork," Riggins-Ezzell added.

The Tennessee State Museum is located at Fifth and Deaderick Streets in downtown Nashville. The museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday and is closed on Mondays. The museum is free to the public, although a $5 donation is suggested for those visiting the Max exhibition.
