Delaney Museum at Beck

Coming to the Beck Cultural Corridor will be the Delaney Museum at Beck, ancestral home of world-renowned artists, Beauford and Joseph Delaney.


Reverend John Samuel and Delia Elizabeth Johnson Delaney reared their children at 815 East Vine Avenue.  Although this home that the Delaneys grew up in no longer exits, the elder brother, Samuel, owned a house that would become the last Delaney family home in Knoxville. This home, Delaney Museum at Beck, will preserve the heritage and legacy of this extraordinary family. 


The remaining Delaney house was acquired by Beck and is situated on its adjoining property. Built in 1910 the Delaney house is located at 1935 Dandridge Avenue.  While the property is in critical need of extensive restoration, it has not been torn down, it has not been destroyed, it has not been erased. History has been preserved, history has been saved.  Henceforth, the narrative of this rich history will be available for all the world to see, Delaney Museum at Beck.   


Please consider donating to Beck today. We cannot do this important work without you. Thank you.
