LA-based artist, Tyler Ramsey has landed in Knoxville and he’s ready for an incredible two-day event at the Knoxville Museum of Art.

With so many of our members being active on social media, we wanted to give everyone a head’s up on the hashtags for the weekend…


Of course, if you’re not following us on Instagram, you better click below and get with it!



We’ll see some of you tomorrow at the Summer Art Academy Special Opportunity class.  Students ages 5-13 will work with Ramsey and understand his method, as well as create art themselves.  The photos from this will be awesome.  Ramsey is super passionate about kids and exposing them to art!

Then it’s all hands on deck for Controlled Chaos on Saturday, July 9.  It’s going to be a live visual art performance/cocktail party held at the KMA.

Ramsey will use anything but brushes – including dancers and volunteers – to create a piece of art like no other. The canvas will stretch 12 feet X 12 feet.  There will music from Charlie Mars, food from Nama, drinks from Oliver Royale and of course art!

If you don’t have your tickets yet, what are you waiting for???  Tickets are $65 and can be purchased online.


Tyler is known for his performance art, and has been working with children all over the world for many years, inspiring them by painting murals. Ramsey has never used a paint brush, only his fingers, and will have young artists  and audiences energized, and thinking, while creating a large abstract landscape painting with only “what.”
