Collectible Tennessee Aquarium holiday ornament to benefit Hart Gallery

A limited-time ornament of the Tennessee Aquarium will raise funds for the Hart Gallery, a Signal Centers program that supports artists who have a disability or are suffering from homelessness.

The ornament is a stainless steel and resin portrait of the Tennessee Aquarium. It will be available for purchase at the Tennessee Aquarium’s gift shop, the Hart Gallery, and other area galleries and gift shops starting Wednesday, Nov. 29. Pre-sales are available now at hartgallery.org.

All of the proceeds will go to the Hart Gallery, whose programs aid artists who are experiencing homelessness, or living with mental and physical disabilities, as well as disabled veterans and individuals escaping abusive situations.

The stainless-steel ornament highlights the Tennessee Aquarium’s crystalline glass roof in royal blue resin. It will be sold in a protective royal blue box and include an insert card of Hart Gallery artist Darron DeSantis’ painting of the Tennessee Aquarium entitled, “Have a Blue Christmas.”
