About this position


About us:

We call ourselves a “Nashville Original” because we’ve been growing in this community for over 51 years. We create internationally-known environments & exhibits for cultural, historical, collegiate and corporate clients. Think The Pro Football Hall of Fame, The National World War II Museum, The Eisenhower Presidential Library and The National Civil Rights Museum…you get the idea. We design, build, and install one-of-a-kind projects that touch people’s passions.


The Team:

We are a tight-knit production team with an unwavering commitment to quality. Thousands of people will walk through our exhibits in museums, presidential libraries, and halls of fame each year. We take pride in bringing our own families to our exhibits, so our design, fabrication, and installation must be to the highest standards. We don’t run a plug-and-play assembly line. We are looking for high-achieving, problem-solving, creative painters, craftspeople & fabrication professionals.
