If you never get a chance to visit Greece this is pretty close….the architecture is pretty impressive!!
Originally built out of wood and brick for Tennessee's Centennial Celebration in 1896, it was replaced by it's current limestone and marble representation, when that structure started showing signs of deterioration ... when funding for a sculpture of Athena never materialized, the great hall stayed empty until the 1980's, when local artist Alan LeQuire won the commission to build that...

The structure isn't all there is to see here. The permanent art collection is wonderful. Visited over Thanksgiving weekend and also found the visiting exhibition well worth the time spent. The history surrounding the original centennial exhibition was most intersting, too. Take the time to visit!

This is a good place to hang out and pretend you're somewhere else. Love Nashville but this is silly. My message to the architects of this town: go ahead & borrow classic themes, but replication is trivial. Knock it down, build statue of Blake Shelton.
