The Memphis Brooks Museum of Art has teamed up with the owner of City & State and The Liquor Store to redesign and relaunch the museum's gift shop.

The Brooks worked with Lisa Toro on the new store. It features "a collection of handmade and unique goods from around the world reflective of the global roots of our art collection,” said Emily Ballew Neff, the Brooks executive director.

“Lisa’s great aesthetic sensibilities and deft touch are a perfect match for what our patrons and members appreciate," Ballew Neff said.

The merchandise selection will change with the museum's exhibits and the seasons, with new selections added each month to the fully redesigned 350 square-foot space on the museum’s ground floor.

The store will open with a grand opening celebration Wednesday, Dec. 6 at 5 p.m. For more information, visit

The relaunch of the store comes as Brooks board members are weighing an option to move the museum from its Overton Park home to a spot on the Memphis riverfront.
