New public art has been installed this week in downtown Knoxville. Mecosta, Mich., artist Robert Barnum was here, hanging his “Rhythm of Knoxville” metal artwor...k.

You'll find “Rhythm of Knoxville” on Gay Street, next to Nama restaurant, above the pedestrian walkway that connects with the State Street Garage.

It's the latest in a series of public art recently installed throughout downtown Knoxville. It was commissioned by the City-funded Public Arts Committee.

You can't see the artwork well right now because of the scaffolding and temporary protective coverings set up during the installation. But the installation is nearly complete, so be sure to walk by and admire the sculpture next time you're on Gay Street.
