The Art Center is supported under an agreement between the Tennessee Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts. We thank the Tennessee General Assembly and the Tennessee Arts Commission for their support.

We are located at 201 Badger Rd. in Oak Ridge. Please come by and see us.



From the West via Interstate 40:
Exit Interstate 40 at Exit 356, Highway 58/Oak Ridge. Highway 58 becomes Highway 95 before it comes into Oak Ridge where it is known as the Oak Ridge Turnpike. Stay on this road until you come into Oak Ridge and reach stop light # 11 (ORAU Way). Turn right on ORAU Way. Take the 1st (immediate) left onto Badger Avenue. We are the 2nd building on the left past the Friendship Bell.

From the West via I-75/Pellissippi Parkway (Highway 162):
Stay on Highway 162 which becomes Illinois Avenue. Turn right on Badger Avenue (immediately before the Doubletree Hotel). We are the 1st building on the right after the sharp left curve.

From the North or East via I-40/75 South:
Exit at the Clinton/Highway 62 exit (Exit #122). Head west toward Oak Ridge where the road becomes Highway 95. Stay on this road until you reach stoplight #10 (Tulane Avenue) - turn left onto Tulane. Take the first right after the American Museum of Science and Energy. At the stop sign turn right onto Badger Avenue. We are the 1st building on the right after the sharp left curve.

Exit at Exit 81, Lenoir City Highway 95, and turn left onto Highway 95 at the end of the ramp. Stay on this road until you come into Oak Ridge and reach stop light # 11 (ORAU Way). Turn right on ORAU Way. Take the 1st (immediate) left onto Badger Avenue. We are the 2nd building on the left past the Friendship Bell.

(We're located very close to Oak Ridge's American Museum of Science and Energy. A fine family day trip might include a visit there, too. AMSE is located on South Tulane Avenue.)


What's Goin' On? , our painted mural, identifies the rear facade of the Art Center from the center city park and greets visitors as they approach from that direction.

The mural was sponsored by an Arts Build Communities grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission and the Art and Culture Alliance of Knoxville, Walmart, Pittsburgh Paints, and a host of individual contributors. It was designed by artist, Kevin Wright, and created by Mr. Wright and large team of volunteer painters.


The Oak Ridge Art Center is open to the public seven days a week. Admission is free, but donations are very welcome.

Hours:
Tuesday - Friday: 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
