Wayne-O-Rama is now closed! It was open from Nov. 19, 2016 through Sept. 30, 2017. Designed by Emmy-winning artist Wayne White, it's a funhouse of Chattanooga history for all ages. Wayne-O-Rama is sponsored by See Rock City, Inc. and presented by The Shaking Ray Levi Society at the Tenn Arts space, with generous support from the Benwood Foundation, the Footprint Foundation, the Lyndhurst Foundation and the McKenzie Foundation.



Founded in 1986, the Shaking Ray Levi Society is a volunteer-run, 501(c)(3) non-profit arts education organization.

The mission of the Shaking Ray Levi Society is to nurture and support music, film, and performance art that is challenging, non-traditional, and falls outside the mainstream, in order to help nourish the cultural growth of Chattanooga.

This is done by sponsoring shows by artists recognized on a national and international level, supporting original work by area musicians and filmmakers, and engaging the community through workshops and educational outreach programs.

"Only in our country are our children not receiving the benefits of the dynamic energies taking place in our culture and in the heritage of our culture and so, the work of the Shaking Ray Levi Society in my opinion is very important because they are seeking to provide an alternative to the marketplace dynamics." - composer, saxophonist and MacArthur fellowship recipient Anthony Braxton (video)

"SRLS is a very sound organization that has made a strong contribution to Chattanooga over the years" - Dr. Thomas Wolf, WolfBrown



The SRLS is a funded agency of ArtsBuild

 

PROJECTS AND OUTREACH

Since 1986, the mission of the Shaking Ray Levi Society (SRLS), a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts education organization, has been to support original work by area artists, engage the community through outreach programs, and present artists recognized on a national and international level.

The SRLS strives to nurture creativity throughout the area in schools, hospitals and other facilities with a partnership with The Rhythmic Arts Project (TRAP), which allows the SRLS to reach those with various disabilities using percussion as a tool; this outreach concentrates on underserved populations (including children with cognitive, physical and emotional disabilities) at facilities including Signal Centers, Dawn School, Borderless Arts (VSA Tennessee), Hospice of Chattanooga's Grief Camp, Chattanooga Therapeutic Recreation Services and the Chattanooga Zoo's Camp ZooAbility.

The SRLS presents arts and culture in a diverse way that spans music, film, dance, visual and performance art, history, education and more.  It was responsible for the planning, project management and implementation of the year-long Southside installation Wayne-O-Rama in 2016-2017, a local history funhouse designed by 4-time Emmy winning artist Wayne White.
