An Arts + Culture Campus on our Downtown Riverfront.
Re-establishing Memphis as a thriving hub of arts and culture.
Memphis Art Park (MAP) proposes to create two community art centers and an outdoor art park on a public campus along the downtown Memphis riverfront. MAP’s new 2016 Master Plan would beautify, connect and bring dynamism to the neglected Front Street Promenade—our city’s front doorstep.
Memphis Art Park will serve as a creative incubator and an integrative forum for our city’s emerging filmmakers, musicians, dancers, performing artists, visual artists, and entrepreneurs. The facilities throughout MAP’s downtown campus will also provide Memphis artists with an intimate yet high-profile showcase space, so locals and tourists alike will be able to enjoy our city’s emerging arts & culture amid spectacular views of the mighty Mississippi River and Downtown.
Memphis Art Park's true aim is to nurture the soulful, artistic, and historically-innovative creativity already inherent to our city’s DNA. MAP would help catalyze our citywide renaissance and re-establish Memphis as a thriving hub of arts and culture.
