Steve Benneyworth Fund for the Arts

Steve Benneyworth 
December 3, 1948 - August 5, 2014

Steve Benneyworth had an expansive appreciation for art that was reflected in his work within many different mediums. His most distinctive pieces though were very large and of steel and concrete.  They can be found on the campuses of Vanderbilt and Belmont Universities as well as private residences in Nashville and cities beyond. 

Steve was at his brightest when surrounded by people who loved art, art of any kind and artists of any age or proficiency. So it is fitting that this gift to Owl's Hill Nature Sanctuary will benefit the widest range of programs and people. Steve was a gift to Nashville and a gift to all the people he touched inside and outside the art community of Tennessee. The people who knew and loved him hope that what he did for all of us can now pass through to the lives of all those that did not enjoy that privilege.

The Stephen Benneyworth Fund for the Arts at Owl's Hill will allow us to work towards one of our goals of expanding art offerings of all kinds as a way to continue to connect people with nature.
