The Knoxville Museum of Art

When we were at the Beck Cultural Exchange Center, we heard about world re-nowned artists, the Delaney Brothers, Beauford and Joseph. Eventually the Beck Center will have a separate building dedicated to the brothers. But for now, I thought I would go down to the KMA and check out their art. It turns out that the KMA is going to be having an exhibit featuring Beauford next month. So, I’m going to wait to discuss the Delaney brothers. Instead, I’m going to talk about the female artists exhibited.

Thank you for visiting and listening to the latest episode!

Evelyn Hazen Knoxville, TN

I haven’t been able to travel lately, so I decided to tell the story from Knoxville, TN. It is the story of Evelyn Hazen, a local woman who sued for breach of promise to marry and seduction in the 1930s.

In Knoxville, we have a local tourist attraction, the Mabry-Hazen House. Once the home of Miss Evelyn Hazen, a woman who was seduced, lied to, used, and set aside. Instead of going quietly away, Evelyn decided to file suit against Ralph Scharringhaus. Even though she knew she would lose her reputation and many friends, she stood up for herself.

The Mabry-Hazen House is located on Mabry Hill in Knoxville, TN.
