Re: “Memphis College of Art to Close

William S. Paley,

This isn't a Memphis issue. [3] Anyone blaming the city, or it's people, for this is beyond ignorant.

You do know that Aquinas College in Nashville fired 90% of it's staff this year in a downsizing right? [1] Or that this happen in Omaha, Nebraska this month as well? [2]

This is due to mismanagement by a private board. It has NOTHING to due with our city.

You are the loser. Move to Nashville. Get stuck in a real estate bubble.

Just stop using your "codes" here. We aren't stupid. We know what you mean.

Re: “Memphis College of Art to Close

There is no reason for this. I don't trust these Conservancys. Next thing you know, the Academy will be someone's home with Overton Park for their front yard. Give the Art School all those tax grants that you give new businesses, and leave it alone. Just tell the public how to get to its elevator, downstairs.

Re: “Memphis College of Art to Close

what do you expect? Typical Memphis...and Memphians wonder why Nashville, is laughing at us...MCA was a train wreck...Bad real estate purchases, Questionable debt, Slowly laying off Top tier teachers..High COSTS to Attend...followed by shrinking enrollment...and this is what you end up with...The President and the MCA Board deserve a big FAT 'F' for failure..Welcome to LOSERVILLE.

Re: “Memphis College of Art to Close

I grew up in Memphis and took classes in cermaics, drawing and pastels at the "Saturday School" at The Memphis Art Academy from 1964- 1968. It was such a great experience and helped prepare me for college. I left Memphis and went to Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. I have very fond memories.

Re: “Memphis College of Art to Close

This is Bull#*it. WTF. I spent 5 years of my young adulthood in this place which changed my world. I found my calling as many others did over 81 years. It was once called Memphis Academy of Fine Art when I graduated in 1980. They didn't just let anyone attend or even graduate if they felt your caliber of potential talent/s or if one's heart was not in it. This institution produced some of the best, cream of the crop, artists of all mediums from all over the world, who helped change the course of the art world as we know it today. This closure is insulting to all the alumni and passionate instructors over the years. In my day, as a student, this was not a mere technical school to teach someone how to draw or paint but more "How To See". An academy of concept, thought and in some cases, a movement. Anyone that attended and who was lucky enough to graduate were and are considered family. What the heck happened? In my opinion, once the "fine arts" and it's esthetic curriculum was taken out of the mission statement, it compromised the integrity of this institution, which today, reflects its demise. I am saddened to know that inspiring future artists will not have the opportunity to find their calling as I did, along with my colleagues, many of whom are world renowned, award winning artists, still working today.

Re: “Former Love In Action Leader Marries His Same-Sex Partner

My heart was filled with remorse and pain for the past 7 months when my husband ended our marriage and went to his EX lover because i was not able to give him a son. I was so devastated and almost committed suicide because of the love and affection i had for my husband. I searched and asked everyone i knew for help but all my efforts were useless not until i was refereed to Doctor Casera by Oliver who i met online that he could be of help to my marriage for he has helped her before. I got in touch with the Doctor and i poured out everything i had in mind to him and he encouraged me and promised to make me smile and make me live a better life by getting my husband back with his powers between just 24 hours. I believed in him and to my very eyes, my husband came on his knees pleading for forgiveness to come back and rectify his mistakes and today we are living with so much Joy and happiness. If anyone out there needs help of any-kind, get in touch with the Doctor now for he will help you out.. E-mail: OR call/text: +1 (518) 460-6400.

Re: “Memphis College of Art to Close

I was a student at MCA a couple of decades ago, and I'm glad to have had the privilege. With the state of world affairs in general, I wonder if there are any other art schools in the U.S. facing imminent closure or are heading into bankruptcy? Declining enrollment, real estate debt, and lack of plans for long-term financial sustainability can doom any organization. Is this the start of a domino effect?

This does seem to be a land grab.

This is progressing too quickly not to be well planned.

Re: “A Frayser Apartment Complex is Getting a $6M Facelift

Thanks, Maya, for highlighting the Frayser neighborhood and the fabulous partnership that NPI is so proud to be a small part of. I hope your readers will agree that this is the best looking vacant apartment building in Memphis! And it won't be that long before our partners will turn it into quality, affordable housing that all Memphians, especially families associated with MLK Prep and Frayser Elementary can be proud of.
