Tim Ozgener, the President and CEO of Oz Arts Nashville. In 2013, Tim and his father turned their old 10,000-square-foot warehouse into Nashville’s first contemporary arts center. Oz Arts, which was inspired by similar centers in cities like New York and Miami, brings contemporary performing and visual art by some of the world’s leading artists to Nashville. The panel will be moderated by:

Calling on his past life as a musician, Dave’s work shares vocabularies and aesthetics across art forms – always designed from a perspective of sincere story telling.
