Attending Art School in Memphis

Memphis is one of those unique cities that, when you leave it, the rhythms of the city stay with you like a contagious song you find yourself humming throughout the day. Memphis is the home of the blues, the birthplace of rock and roll, and the only land in the United States that has allowed a monarch to reign since the Treaty of Paris in 1783. For the aspiring artist, the infectious pulse of this city provides inspiration that transcends visual aesthetics; requiring you to feel as much as you see, intuit as much as you ponder. As with almost everything in Memphis, art is a cause for celebration. It seems as if every week there is some event to enjoy, put on by one of the myriad organizations determined to keep art and culture at the forefront of Memphis living. The Brooks Museum of Art, for example, hosts “The Art of Good Taste” (an event that allows you to enjoy fine foods and even finer art concurrently), First Wednesdays, and Art on the Rocks. Moreover, the Greater Memphis Arts Council, which also happens to be the 8th largest United Arts Fund, offers up “Artrageous”, a convivial affair that sees well over a thousand people enjoying various art installations and live music, as well as Arts Access, an outreach program geared to bring the arts to those who may not be able to afford experiencing them. Finally, Delta Axis is yet another organization that enhances the Memphis art scene by devoting itself to the discovery or resurrection of new or neglected art, respectively. Clearly, the art community of Memphis is very active and the involvement of local art students within this community is reciprocal. In fact, the colleges of Memphis work together as a consortium to provide their students with the widest array of courses and opportunities possible, a relationship that serves the students, the schools, and the city. The art scene in Memphis is food for the soul and nothing, aside from the famous pork barbecue, will leave a student more satisfied.
