UrbanArt Wins Innovation Award from First Tennessee Foundation!

UrbanArt has won an Innovation Award from the First Tennessee Foundation!

Curious Pictures, a downtown-centric art installation supported by the Center City Commission, consists of projecting large-scale digital graphics and film vignettes onto 10 selected buildings of significance in Downtown Memphis. These multi-story moving illuminations will bring to life the cityscape and illustrate the possibilities and potential of public art. The project will transform downtown into a temporary interactive art installation where art, architecture and technology collide. The Memphis Chapter of the American Institute of Architects will assist, and Indie Memphis and Film Fuel, a branch of Launch Memphis, will serve as a partners to demonstrate Memphis' rising film community.

Ten artists from Memphis, California, Germany, and England will be featured for the night of Saturday 22 May. Locations shall be announced prior to the night of the show. Due to equipment costs,UrbanArt is currently seeking additional private support in the form of donations to extend the exhibition beyond one night only.
