From the Desk of the Head of School- May 5, 2023

Dear Harding Academy Learning Community,
The 46th Annual Harding Art Show opening night was a huge success. It was a beautiful evening filled with guests from the larger Nashville community. This incredible event would not be possible without our Art Show Chairs, Hayley Gerber and Whitney Morris, and all of our volunteers and sponsors - thank you all! I love to see how our Harding community comes together. I am proud to share that 100% of the proceeds from the 2023 featured artist Kate Roebuck’s featured piece will be donated to Covenant Heals, which will directly benefit all of friends and families at The Covenant School.
Please join us tonight for the Evening of the Arts from 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM, and tomorrow, Saturday, May 6 from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM for family day activities. If you are unable to join us on campus, please visit the online portion of our show at to view works by featured artist Kate Roebuck and various artists. The Harding Art Show, both in-person and online, will close on Saturday, May 6 at 4:00 PM. Below you will find some important details about the Show:
