Memphians have long been proud of our city’s cultural history, and in recent years, the rest of the country has begun to take notice of our regional artistic talent. The many visual artists working in a variety of genres, media, and neighborhoods across our city make Memphis one of the most interesting and exciting art destinations in the United States. Organized in conjunction with the 2024 Memphis Flower Show, Memphis 2024 celebrates the vibrancy and originality of artists working in Memphis today through more than fifty colorful paintings, sculptures, ceramics, examples of fiber art, photography, metalwork, and assemblage, all by artists who have chosen to call Memphis home and invest in the local arts community.

The work on view in Memphis 2024 emphasizes color, texture, and scale, but also ingenuity, a sense of place, and a particular warmth of spirit that truly defines our city. The exhibition will offer a dazzling array of work by the most creative men and women working in the Mid-South today, and can instill a sense of pride in all visitors for Memphis’s irrepressible cultural energy.
