I Love Memphis Mural Dedication at "Crafts and Drafts"

The I Love Memphis Murals around town are hard to miss. By now, I’m sure you’ve spied one of the six murals around Memphis—and if you haven’t already seen all of them, well, you’re in luck. This Saturday, November 14th, from 10 AM-4 PM at the parking lot Autumn and N. Watkins in the Crosstown neighborhood (behind Crosstown Arts, Amurica, Hi Tone, Co-Motion Studio, etc.) the UrbanArt Commission, in partnership with the Memphis CVB and support from Crosstown Arts and the building’s owner, will be dedicating the newest I Love Memphis mural to the series. Designed and painted by local artists Kong Wee Pang and Jay Crum, the mural stands proudly in the Crosstown neighborhoods and shows off some serious Memphis pride.

If the mural alone isn’t enticing enough (but we can vouch and say it definitely is), the Memphis Flyer is hosting the inaugural "Crafts and Drafts" shopping and craft beer event in the parking lot right next to the mural. Come out and join us to celebrate the release of the mural with a day of craft beer, food trucks, free (while it lasts) I Love Memphis merchandise, local crafts, and of course, great public art.  And while you’re at it on Saturday, swing by the UrbanArt table and then go take a picture in front of the mural. Tag it #ilovememphis, and you may be featured on the I Love Memphis blog.

 Cash only event, folks—see you Saturday!
