FEAST is a recurring public dinner designed to use community-driven financial support to democratically fund emerging art-makers. MemFeast is Memphis’ local version founded and facilitated by Crosstown Arts, dedicated to rethinking how the arts are financed and experienced communally. The original FEAST was conceived in Brooklyn in 2009.
At the second installment of MemFeast, seven artists proposed public art projects for Midtown’s Crosstown neighborhood. The most votes went to artist Robin Salant and her proposal to illuminate the Sears Crosstown building with colored solar lights. Learn more about Crosstown Lights at facebook.com/crosstownlights.
