HENDERSONVILLE, TN (WSMV) - In the world of art museums, the Monthaven Arts and Cultural Center keeps proving it’s the Little Engine That Could with exhibits that deserve your attention.

From history to oddity, the museum keeps making it happen.

From Nashville, you have to go north to get to Hendersonville, where workers at Monthaven will tell you to Go West.

The artists’ map at Monthaven goes in every direction. Western swing and the suits of the great designer Manuel is the most recent exhibit.

Everything has a western flair from the man who created the outfit.

Go West is the thirsty exhibit that’s leaving, coming in something smooth to pop your palette, martinis and the art of the olive.

It’s not “Suspicious Minds,” it’s creative ones, and a strong desire to make Monthaven memorable with those olives.

As Middle Tennessee grows, so does its art scene. Sumner County climbs aboard.
