Cheekwood Presents INTERVENTIONS: Ann Carrington, Opening June 29

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Cheekwood Estate & Gardens has announced that international sculptor Ann Carrington will be the featured artist for the 2024 INTERVENTIONS exhibition. The show will run from June 29 to October 27, 2024. Launched in 2021, INTERVENTIONS is an arts initiative designed to bring new life to the historic period rooms at Cheekwood and draw inspiration from the Cheek family’s legacy. The series invites renowned artists to create contemporary works that interact with the historic pieces in the Cheekwood Mansion.

Sarah Sperling, Cheekwood’s Vice President of Museum Affairs, expressed enthusiasm for Carrington’s participation. “Visitors will be delighted by Ann Carrington’s vision and expertise, she is an incredibly talented artist,” Sperling said. “The INTERVENTIONS series exemplifies how artistic collaboration adds vibrancy and engagement to the period rooms at Cheekwood. We appreciate each artist’s approach to the program, and we look forward to sharing Ann Carrington’s creativity with our community.”

Ann Carrington, based in Margate, England, studied at The Royal College of Art. She is known for creating ornate sculptures from discarded and found objects such as knives, spoons, buttons, cans, and coins. Her recent exhibitions include shows at the Musee des Impressionnismes Giverny and Kunsthalle in Munich. The upcoming INTERVENTIONS exhibit will feature 33 of her works, inspired by Cheekwood’s gardens and the Cheek family, displayed throughout the period rooms.

The INTERVENTIONS program is made possible by the Sandra Schatten Foundation. For more information on current and upcoming exhibitions, ticketing, and other details, visit
