UrbanArt 'Work in Progress' Exhibtion Series


Friday October 8 will be the opening night of the second exhibition in the UrbanArt exhibition series, Work in Progress, highlighting innovative urban design in the public realm.  The first exhibition in the series, 40 Bike Rack Maquettes, is recent work by native Memphian, Gadsby Creson.  This series of maquettes explores the opportunity to create functional and innovative designs for bike racks.  The artist’s hope is that the maquettes will eventually be used as blueprints for bike racks around the City of Memphis.
Creson earned her Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from Tufts University/School of the Museum of Fine Arts and is currently a candidate for a Masters of Fine Arts degree at Memphis College of Art.
The opening for 40 Bike Rack Maquettes will be held on Friday October 8 from 6 – 8 PM at the UrbanArt office on Broad Avenue.  The exhibition will last from October 8, 2010 through January 28, 2011.  Viewings of the exhibition will be by appointment only.  To schedule an appointment to view the exhibition after the opening, please contact
