The UrbanArt Commisson and the Center City Commission have teamed up tobring 'Curious Pictures' to Memphis. The city has never before seen or experienced art on this scale before, as works from various local artists will be projected onto historical downtown buildings through every Friday through October (see below for schedule of events). 

The first event was a success as Jill Wissmiller showcased her original works on the the north facade of the Orpheum Theater. Attendees got the chance to get crafty with various odds and ends that Jill provided and project their own work onto the building. Many were able to show Memphis their best karaoke skills as songs were also projected and music blared in the Orpheum's Central Parking lot. Jill also built a Magic Meaning Making Machine that viewers chilled out in and enjoyed Pickles on a Stick, beverages and other snacks that were on the menu. There was a great turnout and this set the bar for the following Curiuous Pictures events. Good job, Jill! Thanks to all of those who supported!
