Public/Art/ists Part II Opening Reception
Crosstown Arts, the UrbanArt Commission and ArtsMemphis are partnering to present a multi-venue exhibition and programming series throughout 2015 to acknowledge public art makers in Memphis.
The series will collectively recognize and share the work of artists who have participated in Memphis’ public art projects and initiatives, including the studio work (non-public art projects) of these artists, as well as insight into their processes and involvement in creating public art projects from conception to completion. The exhibition and ongoing events of Public/Art/ists not only act as a connection point to these artists, but also reveal the multiple facets of these artists’ practices in the community.
ArtsMemphis will host part II of Public/Art/ists, sharing the studio work of 15 artists who have made contributions to Memphis’ urban landscape:
Jonathan Auger, Tootsie Bell, Stephanie Cosby, Beth Edwards , Anne J. Froning, Suzy Hendrix, Pinkney Herbert, Susan Maakestad, Brandon Marshall, Meredith Olinger, Kong wee Pang, Jeannie Tomlinson Saltmarch, Lance Turner, Jill Wissmiller, and Tad Lauritzen Wright
note: Parking for the event is only available on side streets William Arnold and Black or across Mendenhall Rd at Holt tire. No parking will be allowed directly in front of ArtsMemphis Gallery at 575 S Mendenhall Rd
