Penny Performances

Thirty Organizations Announce Penny Performances for Knox County Students

The Arts & Culture Alliance of Greater Knoxville in cooperation with the local arts community is proud to announce the third year of Penny Performances, a program developed to meet the local arts community’s long-term goal of serving and educating East Tennessee's children. Penny Performances provide every child in Knox County, including home-schooled and private-schooled students, an opportunity to attend local arts and culture events/activities by nearly 30 organizations at the maximum cost of ONE PENNY when accompanied by one paying adult during the 2012/2013 academic school year. Concerts, plays, dance performances, historic home tours, fairs, museums, festivals, arts workshops, radio broadcasts, movies, and more are part of Penny Performances. Organizations whose admission is regularly free are offering special programs or gifts for attending Knox County students. Notices announcing this program will be sent home with every Knox County public school child.

Almost 100 events are included in Penny Performances this year, and in addition, nine organizations offer year-round opportunities for Knox County School children: Blount Mansion, Crescent Bend House & Gardens, East Tennessee History Center, James White’s Fort, Knoxville Museum of Art, Mabry-Hazen House, Marble Springs, WDVX, and Alexia’s School of Middle Eastern Dance. The schedule of participating performances is listed on the Penny Performances web site at www.Penny4Arts.com.

Families may register on this site to receive weekly e-mail notices about participating events. Most participating performances will allow one paying adult to bring up to three students for one penny each.
