And here are the answers:

  1. Knoxville, TN—In the year 2000, the city began the self-guided Cradle of Country Music Walking Tour to highlight the beginnings of country music in Knoxville and its ties to performers such as Dolly Parton, Hank Williams, the Everly Brothers, Chet Atkins, Roy Acuff, Howard “Louie Bluie” Armstrong, and Elvis Presley. Also, a triangle-shaped plot at the intersection of downtown’s Summit Hill Drive and Gay Street is called the Cradle of Country Music Park.
  2. Raleigh, NC—The Living Arts College has been in existence for 27 years and offers programs in interactive media, photography, filmmaking and gaming and animation.
  3. Indianapolis, IN–Each of the eco-friendly transit shelters was conceived as a way for poets to participate in the public art program.
