One more art opening well, closing, actually today: This one is for the
BFA Exhibition at Memphis College of Art
. And speaking of art, one of
today s festivals is the Art Farm Studio Tour
at Marshall and Monroe.
If you ve never been to this, you ll be surprised. There are lots of galleries
and studios in the area, some visible from the street and well known (Marshall
Arts Gallery, Delta Axis Contemporary Art Gallery), but many are tucked away
in alleys and in warehouses. It s a very cool little pocket of artists and
there will be live music by Lucero and it s fun. Another great festival is
today s Third Annual Madison Heights International Street Festival
the neighborhood near Madison and Cleveland, Memphis most diverse community;
features food, dance, music, and entertainment from a variety of cultures.
