Crosstown Arts, the UrbanArt Commission and ArtsMemphis have partnered to present a multi-venue exhibition and programming series throughout 2015 to acknowledge public art makers in Memphis.
UrbanArt Commission will host part III of Public/Art/ists, sharing new outdoor installations by three artists who have made contributions to Memphis’ urban landscape:
ArtVillage Gallery, 410 S. Main, 7-9 pm
Terri Jones – Installation in between 531 and 525 S. Main St. (next door to Earnestine and Hazel’s)
Christopher Reyes – Video installation at Fire Station No. 2, 474 S. Main St. (running every half hour on the half hour)
Vitus Shell – Mural at Carter & Company, 455 S. Front St.
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.
Organized by the UrbanArt Commission in partnership with ArtsMemphis and Crosstown Arts
