John Weeden
John Weeden has resigned his post as Executive Director of the Urban Art Commission (UAC) to become a private consultant. During Weeden’s 3-years with UrbanArt he has overseen significant changes in Memphis’ Percent for Art Program, won three national awards, and relaunched the UAC’s website.

“Additionally, we developed the methods and secured the means to build sustainability within the organization itself,” Weeden wrote in his letter of resignation. “We completed 31 works of public art in three years, and there are another 15 that are on track to be completed before July 1, 2012. Your support has been greatly appreciated in accomplishing these endeavors, and I thank you profoundly.”

Weeden has created a Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) to provide art consulting and design services.
