365 Things to Do in Memphis #68: See Work By Memphis’ Up and Coming Student Artists

Posted by Holly Whitfield | March 8th 2012 680 0

Assignment #68 in the 365 Things to Do in Memphis is to see some of Memphis' up-and-coming artists for free.

MCA Graduate School Gallery, Memphis, Tenn.

Memphis College of Art students exhibit their work in the galleries at the Overton Park campus and the downtown campus. The work ranges in terms of skill and style, but it's always interesting and the exhibits change frequently.

When I visited the downtown gallery this week, there was a framed, spray painted mirror, a "brain" made of fabric, photography, paintings and mixed media work. Occasionally, you can catch shows by visiting artists and professors.

The galleries are free. Just let the desk workers know you'd like to see the work and you'll be able to get in.

Go there:

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
