The Native American Flute is a fascinating instrument that creates exquisite music. It is used and has been used by Native American people in different ways, such as in their prayers, festivities, weaved with their beautiful stories, or for boys to woo girls.
The Knoxville/Townsend area is very lucky to be home of the Smoky Mountains Flute Circle. The SMFC has hosted two back to back National level events, the 2013 and 2014 Renaissance of the North American Flute Foundation annual gatherings. It all started with Knoxville Area Cherokee Flute Player Randy McGinnis who founded the SMFC.

Juho Viitasalo shares Construction 2000, a unique geometric steel sculpture in Helsinki, Finland. Its most eye catching feature is a 600 kg pyramid that seems to float in air without any support. This 10 meter tall physics defying structure has stood since 1982 and is truly unique in the world. However it is still somewhat unknown. Construction 2000 was designed by Markku Viitasalo and now his son wants to take the design to the world out of the confines of the office block where it stands in Helsinki.
