Emily Harper Beard

Emily Harper Beard, community relations manager at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville, TN, works with a variety of community groups and audiences to help promote the Frist Center’s mission to individuals and groups who may not have ease of access to the world of art, art-related programs and art education. Prior to working at the Frist Center, she received her B.A. in graphic design from Middle Tennessee State University and worked at Animax Design—a puppet shop in Nashville which creates characters for live shows, film, and television. She continues to be an active artist in and supporter of Nashville’s growing arts scene. While she enjoys working in various media, her two passions are oil painting and batik. Batik is a cloth that is traditionally made using a manual wax-resist dyeing technique. Over the last ten years, Beard has enjoyed learning more about the unique process of batik and allowing it to document her own life experiences. For more information, please visit her website.
