Re: “An Agenda for Memphis

This article relates to me as a photographer in this city... Talented artists in Memphis are very under rated and taken for granted. Something has to be done and it starts with correctly promoting this sector of the economy to the vast majority of the city. There seems to be way too much ignorance about both the economical and cultural weight art can have in any city like Memphis. All major cities like Chicago, New York, Phoenix, etc.. understand that and promote it heavily... Sadly we do not understand this in Memphis. Even though the city gets its fair share of talented artists year after year, MOST end up leaving for cities that have more incentives for them.
There is an "art district" in this city with about 2-3 galleries top thats on its way to die because not enough is done to promote it as such... young artists should be able to populate this area by having studios and galleries. Instead, it is turning to be a pure residential area! There should be help from the local government to help revitalize this district with better landscaping, attractive signs, sculptures, and galleries of all kind...
