Spaces | Hunter Museum of American Art 7.0.33-0+deb9u12


Boasting soaring ceilings, beautiful stone floors, 30-foot windows overlooking the Tennessee River, private river view balconies, and jaw dropping sculptures, the spaces in the Contemporary Wing are the most utilized spaces in the Museum. The Contemporary Wing contains five spaces – the Grand Foyer Lobby, the Auditorium, a combination of the Grand Foyer Lobby and Auditorium, the Paley Terrace and the 24 Hour Terrace.

The Contemporary Wing spaces are available individually for rental Sunday through Friday: click on the “make an inquiry” button below to request a fee for a specific date. Alternately, the full Contemporary Wing may be rented for $6,500. All rentals are for a 4-hour window between 6 PM and 12 AM. If needed, additional event time is available at a cost. Tables and chairs are included for up to 200 guests with a Contemporary Wing rental. All rentals for Saturday require a minimum of a full Contemporary Wing rental or a River Terrace rental.

The River Terrace space is uncovered and requires a tent between April and June. The tent is an additional cost. Please contact the Special Events Team for pricing.
