The studio side features the Kingsport Carousel animals that have been hand-carved from wood, and then hand-painted. The Carousel animals have been located in businesses throughout Kingsport over the past several months so that the public could see the animals that will go on to the Carousel when it is completed in early 2015. Now, all of the animals have been collected in one location open for the public to visit.

In addition to the Carousel animals, the Rounding Boards, Bird Paintings, and other Carousel components are also on exhibit. Carvers and painters will be on hand to talk about the process of creating these beautiful animals, and to discuss the story behind each animal and how each component of the Carousel is tied to the Kingsport Community. There is a Kingsport Carousel store (future gift shop) located within the studios with beautiful t-shirts, notecards, posters, and much more for sale. Help make Pigs Fly!
