What is the Arts Caucus?

The Tennessee Arts Caucus promotes the importance of the arts. It helps facilitate valuable policy discussion on the importance of the arts in our state. The arts have an economic impact on our communities, define who we are culturally and should be a part of nearly every discussion that takes place in the Tennessee General Assembly.

The Arts Caucus currently has a robust membership of House and Senate members. Find your lawmakers here.
