Downtown Memphis Commission Seeks Art For Walkable Project

Posted By on Fri, Mar 2, 2012 at 3:47 PM

The Downtown Memphis Commission (DMC) will offer 20 artists exhibit space in 20 makeshift galleries downtown for 20 days beginning June 1st.

The DMC is currently seeking proposals from Mid-South artists for the inaugural "Unveil Downtown" walkable art event. Selected art will be displayed in downtown restaurants and retail shops, and artists may sell a maximum of 10 pieces from their collection. All of the proceeds from art sales will go back to the artist, but the artist must be willing to donate one item to the Downtown Neighborhood Association for an online silent auction.

Proposals are due by March 23rd. Check out the DMC website for more information on how to submit a proposal.
