Whether it's a brilliant idea on an old napkin, a beautiful hand-rendered sketch, or a delightfully intricate model, this exhibition will unearth and present the hidden artifacts of the art behind design. It's a rarity that an audience can formally experience the creative intimacy behind Nashville's most influential architects and interior designers.

This will be Alfred Williams & Company's 5th quarterly, charitable art and design exhibition. 100% of donations and fine art proceeds will benefit Rebuilding Together Nashville, who's volunteers provide free rehabilitation and critical repairs to the homes of low-income Americans. Many of Nashville's flood victims have received significant help from this organization. Let's support them with a $5 suggested donation at the door.

The REMAINING PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE is:
Thursday, June 21 at 7 PM, Friday, June 22 at 7 PM, Saturday, June 23 at 1 PM and 5 PM.
1888. Tuscumbia, Alabama. Kate Keller needs some help. Her daughter Helen is deaf and blind… and a complete terror! She is wild and rambunctious, and everyone in the house has spoiled her rotten. She is becoming a danger to herself and everyone
around her. Help arrives in the unlikely form of 20-year-old Annie Sullivan, herself once blind, having grown up in the asylums of the North, and determined to teach Helen language. When Captain Keller puts a two-week deadline on Annie’s teaching, she must work a miracle if she is to change the hearts and minds of the Kellers and delve into the darkness and silence which entraps young Helen. The Miracle Worker is a play bustling with life, humor, thrills, and an inspirational miracle you won’t soon forget.
