Historic Nashville Behind-the-Scenes Tour of “Hiding in Plain Sight” An Exhibit of Photos and Stories of Nashville’s Unique Places

April 1, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Historic Nashville members are invited to a behind-the-scenes guided tour of a new exhibit, “Hiding in Plain Sight,” on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at the downtown Nashville Public Library.

As a special treat for Historic Nashville members, the tour will be led by the exhibit’s creators, artist Anna Jaap and writer Robert K. Oermann.

The exhibit sheds a new light on local places residents might consider “ordinary” – until they learn about notable things that happened there.

As our tour guides, Anna Jaap and Robert Oermann will share their stories of collaborating to select the unique places featured this exhibit of photos and stories including the homes once occupied by music legends Patsy Cline and Hank Williams; the Omohundro Water Treatment Plant; Nashville’s first automobile factory; local churches with notable Civil Rights movement history; and even the spot where Lay’s potato chips were once made.

Anna Jaap took her first photos at age 15 using a vintage German camera. She received her BFA from Lipscomb University, and has worked as a studio artist for 25 years.

She lives in Nashville, and serves on the board of Watkins College of Art.
