We’re celebrating our 111th birthday this month and would love for you to join the celebration!
We’re asking for your help to gift the theatre with a beautiful mural that turns a dead space in the lobby into not only a Bijou icon but also a Knoxville icon.
For over a century, the Bijou has been a vital component of East Tennessee’s artistic heritage, a cultural jewel that our community can call our own. This mural will greet all visitors as they walk through the door and speak not only to the natural beauty of our region but also to our rich culture.
Local artist Robert Felker, a longtime supporter of the Bijou and the arts, designed and will construct the mural. You can also view Robert’s work displayed on the pedestrian walkway that crosses Henley Street by the Convention Center. We’re so excited to see his vision come to life and bring more beauty to our historic theatre.
Our goal is to raise $5,500 in March to cover the costs of this birthday gift. When you contribute to this gift, your name will be on a plaque that will accompany the mural in the lobby. When you gift $111 or more, you will receive a print of the painting for yourself.
Each gift is tax-deductible!
Thank you for your support, without you, this jewel couldn’t shine!
