Founder, Tony Mines, opened Art Creations in 1973, after returning home from serving in the U.S. Army in Vietnam. Having several locations throughout Chattanooga over the years, we moved to our current home at the foot of the Walnut St. Bridge, on Frazier Avenue in 1987. Tony had worked in this exact location as a teenager at the Little Art Shop as a custom framer. Tony named the building the Little Building in honor of his former employer and mentor. The Frazier location sells art and graphic supplies and has a custom framing showroom for individual and corporate clients.
