Highlight of Chattanooga visit!
I went on this delightful walking tour with Libby after I came across it here on TripAdvisor and I am so glad I did. Despite the heat that afternoon, there isn’t anything I would rather have done. Libby had a well thought-out plan and took us to various public art installations as well as to galleries and into the studios of several local artists. It was a great introduction to the city, its commitment to public art and to Chattanooga’s vibrant art(ist) scene. I highly recommend this tour. Whether you are visiting or local, I think you will see and hear lots of interesting things you had no idea existed in Chattanooga, and you will want to go back for more.

One of the best art walks I’ve experienced. Libby is extremely knowledgeable and takes you to working artists studios along with public art spaces. I highly recommend this experience for art lovers and/or people curious about the art scene in Chattanooga.

What a fun way to spend the afternoon!
Great tour! Great tour guide! So much fun to see new and local Chattanooga art. Such fun meeting artists and gallery owners. Libby of NSTC is knowledgeable, helpful and lovely. What a fun way to spend the afternoon and experience art more in depth than just looking in a museum.

It is quite an experience!
What a wonderful way to see the vibrant Chattanooga art scene. From one end of downtown Chattanooga to the other, not only do you get to see a wide variety of what this town has to offer in the arts, but you also get a chance to go into the studios of a few artists and hear them talk about their work while seeing several works in progress in an intimate environment. It is quite an experience!

Great tour for visitors or long time Chattanoogans!
An interesting mix of public art and private galleries and artists’ studios. I particularly enjoyed meeting the artists, touring their work spaces, and learning about their techniques and inspirations.  As a long time Chattanooga resident, I thought I had a good grasp of the art scene, but there is so much more to discover than the average person can keep track of. It was also good to learn new things about some of the more familiar pieces of public art that I did not know. HIghly recommended!

Second Timer!
I recently went on the art tour for my second time. The first time was great. This second time around cannot be called a repeat! The experience was even better! The local art scene is large and the quality of work is amazing. Libby shows you the works of many artists in several locations around town and also takes you to artists’ studios to meet them. I highly recommend that you take this tour – more than once!

Definitely recommended!
I am a fan of walking tours in general but I had never taken an art walking tour. Now I will add them to look for when I travel. Go if you are local or in from out of town. This tour is thoughtfully paced and the tour guides are passionate and very knowledgable about the local scene. You will be delighted to learn of so much Chattanooga art talent.

An unexpected treasure!
We really enjoyed the tour and learning about studios that we didn’t even know existed. It was nice to see great art and to learn from the artists about their works. It was a nice variety of style and venues. Libby added her own nice personal touch.

Superb tour!
Just long enough and with great content……learned a lot. The galleries were interesting, particularly because an artist spoke briefly at both River Gallery and Gallery 1401.  Best of the day was getting to see three artist’s studios. Superb tour.

Well worth it!!
The amount of art in Chattanooga will make your head spin. This is a great way to sample the city’s mixture of southern art…from the well known to the obscure. Well worth it!! Be sure to add it to your Chattanooga travel agenda.
