About the event
Wallace Joiner is the newly appointed Executive Director of Turnip Green Creative Reuse—having been a long-time shopper and enthusiast of Turnip Green Creative Reuse, Joiner is thrilled to bring her personal passion for sustainability, conscious consumerism, and community engagement to the forefront in a professional capacity. No stranger to the arts in Nashville, she moved from Memphis, Tennessee, in 2000 to become a charter staff member of the then-fledgling Frist Center for the Visual Arts (now Frist Art Museum). She held several positions at the museum during her tenure, including most recently as managing editor from 2014 to 2022. Prior to working at the Frist, she managed an art gallery for photographer Jack Kenner in Memphis. She has 20 years of experience in the arts and non-profit management, including a wealth of experience in strategic planning, project management, community engagement, event planning, and fundraising from her professional roles, board service, and volunteering experience.
Joiner holds a Bachelor of Arts in Art History and Criticism with a minor in English Literature from the University of Georgia, Athens. In her spare time, you may find her exploring Nashville’s many greenways with her family and dogs, at a movie at the Belcourt Theatre, on a paddleboard or kayak in a local watering hole, cooking and enjoying meals with friends, or on a treasure hunt at yard sales and thrift shops.
