Festivals - Exposure and Heritage - and Hardin Hall 

Most players wore shorts and T-shirts to play kickball at Exposure, but Nikola Printz wore a below-the-knee spaghetti strap dress with red polka dots.

She wore a costume from the upcoming Opera Memphis production of “The Italian Girl,” which will run Feb. 2 and 3.

“I’m playing the title role,” she said.

This year’s festival, presented by New Memphis on Sept. 1 (“901 Day”), drew “several thousand” people, said Anna Traverse, New Memphis communications specialist. “But we don’t have the exact figures yet.”

Exposure, Traverse said, “got started several years ago, but last year was the first we opened it up to the general public. For the first year we did the Exposure event, it was not on 901 day and also was tailored especially for city newcomers. What we found was a bunch of native Memphians kept showing up. They wanted fresh ways to get involved with our city. We thought, ‘Oh, if this is what everyone wants, we should open the doors wide and let everyone in.’”

Exposure is “a way for people to get involved with their city. To love their city actively. And to sort of find fresh ways of being part of the Memphis community. As well as just enjoy and celebrate all the wonderful things Memphis has to offer. Whether it be all the nonprofits and other organizations that were representing themselves or the kickball game as a fun way to get together and see all these different, interesting groups from Memphis you might not otherwise see on a kickball field together.”

……...



Center for Southern Folklore’s Memphis Heritage Festival was more than music, food, crafts and art to Zack and Kim Sykes.

It was their first outing since their son, Samuel, was born eight weeks ago.

Or, as Zack described it, “Mom and Dad’s day out.”

Their outing was “a little nerve wracking,” he said.

“Scary, but fun,” Kim added.

Asked to name the highpoint of the festival, founder/general chair Judy Peiser said, “It looked like everybody was smiling the whole time. I felt the people who came to the festival over two days got a slice of the music grown here.”
And, she said, “For two days you can hear the music that goes from blues to jazz to bluegrass to country to gospel to hip-hop, dance.”

Harvey met Hardin Aug. 31.

Guests braved rain and wind - Hurricane Harvey remnants - to attend a preview party for the newly-renovated Hardin Hall at Memphis Botanic Garden.

Executive director Mike Allen was on hand. “The renovation of Hardin Hall is really important for the long-term sustainability of the Memphis Botanic Garden,” he said. “Rental income from Hardin Hall as well as our three other venues is in a large measure what helps to underwrite the operating costs of our Garden. This renovation brings Hardin Hall into the 21st Century with a current, neutral look, better audio visual technology, enhanced lighting options and more. It will allow us to better compete with some of the newer event venues that have opened in recent months. We have already hosted a couple of wedding receptions, a large civic event and both the Ole Miss and University of Memphis kick-off events. All to really positive reviews.”
