Admission and Parking

While the UTC Fine Arts Center is closed for renovations, the NEW ConTemporary Cress Gallery is a storefront located in downtown Chattanooga at 123 East 7th Street near the corner of Walnut Street. 

Hours for the ConTemporary Cress: 12:00pm – 6:00pm Wednesday – Friday; 1:00pm - 4:00pm Saturday & Sunday; closed Monday and Tuesday. 

The ConTemporary Cress is a pleasant 10 minute walk from the heart of campus via Vine, Oak, or McCallie Ave. If driving, visitors will find metered parking on 7thStreet, Walnut and Cherry Streets. Metered slots in the area tend to turn over often so a drive around the block is typically all that is required to park nearby. If you are visiting at lunch or on a work break, you’ll find numerous nearby restaurants, coffee shops, and deli’s, as well as Chattanooga's acclaimed Passageways Alley with entrances on Cherry and 7th Street.

Admission to the Gallery and all of its public events is free.
