Everywhere You Look, UT

Where in Tennessee can you go to find the presence of the University of Tennessee? Everywhere!

From fertile farms to new fields of study, we’re there. And we’re telling our story of statewide impact in a big way—by painting murals on barns and buildings across Tennessee. In fact, we’re on a mission to paint one in each of Tennessee’s 95 counties by 2030!

Each location has a unique story, and we’re glad for the opportunity to celebrate the many ways our partners are shaping their communities.
