Memphis has long been a national center for innovative cultural production. That tradition continues today, with visual artists working in a variety of genres and media across our city. Memphis 2021 celebrates the vibrancy and originality of artists working in Memphis in this third decade of the twenty-first century through more than fifty colorful paintings, prints, sculptures, examples of fiber art, and a special installation work, all by artists who have chosen to call Memphis home and invest in the local arts community.

The work on view in Memphis 2021 emphasizes color, texture, and scale, but also ingenuity, a sense of place and community responsibility, and an exciting look at what’s to come in Memphis in the 2020s. Come see new work by some of your favorite artists, and discover emerging artists already making their impact on the Bluff City.
