Description

The Candoro Arts & Heritage Center is an historical property now dedicated to the preservation of the culture and heritage of East Tennessee, South Knoxville, and most specifically the surrounding neighborhood known as Vestal. The center consists of buildings and grounds that once belonged to the Candoro Marble Company and are now on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, art and art-related themes are the underpinning for all the creative goings-on at Candoro Marble's main building. It is a setting that unites the power of art and the beauty of architecture.

While Candoro is open only by appointment currently, the Board of Directors is working to staff the site for regular visitors. Candoro can currently be booked for weddings and other events. The Candoro Marble Company building was designed by the famous architect Charles Barber in the architectural style known as Beaux Arts. The exterior of the building is marble and features carved marble and stonework by sculptor Albert Milani. The ornamental ironwork decorating the main entrance is by Samuel Yellin, the most notable artisan of iron during the 20th Century.
