Memphis Art Park?

Posted on Thu, Oct 16, 2008 at 4:00 AM

When it comes to promoting its brand, Memphis has been criticized for being something of a one-note town.

But Memphian John Kirkscey has an idea to change that. "Memphis is the arts Mecca of the South," Kirkscey says. "We need to start celebrating our present culture, not just our past."

Kirkscey is the "idea guy" behind the Memphis Art Park, a proposal to create a public park on the Front Street promenade that would "provide both locals and tourists with an attractive destination to enjoy a wide variety of local art while providing our city's emerging artists with vital arts facilities."
