The Collierville Arts Council is a part of that experience and works to encourage, exhibit and promote this fine arts’ creativity. In addition, Collierville Community Art Galleries were created for the public to showcase artwork for the encouragement and development of artistic expression, and to nurture greater appreciation for art in our community. Each year, the Morton Museum and the Collierville Arts Council collaborate to develop this yearlong rotation of exhibitions in our three galleries.
