Bagwell Center for Media and Art
Home to the Bagwell Gallery
Pellissippi State’s Bagwell Center for Media and Art, one of the most modern academic facilities in the region, serves students who are studying art and media production. It is also a gathering place for community members, who can attend events ranging from art exhibits to children’s summer camps.
Opened in September 2007, the Bagwell Center for Media and Art is named in honor of Ross Bagwell Sr., a pioneer in Knoxville’s cable television production industry, and his family. The 29,370-square-foot building, located on the Hardin Valley Campus, has hosted artists, photographers, graphic designers, filmmakers, and video production and visual arts leaders from around the world.
More than simply a learning and teaching facility, the Bagwell Center is a place where students, faculty and staff, and community members can participate together in The Arts at Pellissippi State.
