Commissioned by Walter’s children in honor and celebration of their father's 80th birthday.
Knestrick, the retired founder of Walter Knestrick Contractor, Inc. and a longtime friend of the Tennessee State Museum. Around Nashville, Walter is very often recognized as the name behind his reputable construction company, but in a different circle in town, he is known as an important part of Nashville’s art community. Most notably, Knestrick has acquired the greatest Red Grooms art and print collection on the globe and has worked to make Grooms’ works accessible to a large audience.
Many of Walter's personal items and artifacts were used in the construction of this work dating back to his early childhood in the late 1930's through present-day.
