Art in the Heart is no longer under the umbrella of Engage Kingsport, a nonprofit that works with the city's office of cultural arts and spearheaded the carousel project. The gallery is now being overseen by a group of twenty-some artists who have come together to create a co-op.
The classroom space from the Art in the Heart Gallery will be relocated to other sites within the city, including the Model City Motors building, the studio above the Kingsport Carousel and at the Renaissance Center.
