Hunter Museum celebrates 60 years


CHATTANOOGA, TN. (Times Free Press) -- The Hunter Museum of American Art is celebrating its anniversary this year, but Executive Director Daniel E. Stetson wants to talk about the future, not the past.

"We may be 60 years old, but we are young," he said during a 90-minute interview dominated by talk of the many new events and outreach programs the museum and its staff are involved in. He stressed the importance and vibrancy of the museum in the community.

"When VW announced they were building here, they mentioned the intangibles," Stetson said. "The three buildings here are tangible, but what they represent is much more. We have the mansion, the modern and the post-modern buildings, and I think that perfectly describes the museum."
