365 Things to Do in Memphis #216: Find a Tiny Art Project

Posted by Holly Whitfield | August 3rd 2012 1529 0

Memphis has a lot of big pieces of public art, but it's the little ones that fascinate me the most. Assignment #216 in the 365 Things to Do in Memphis is to find a tiny art project. Like one of these:

Man on a door, Memphis, Tenn.

Lego, Memphis, Tenn.

Love, Memphis, Tenn.

Where are your favorites?

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.

    The beaver with a red balloon under the Ridgeway Loop. I was just studying that one yesterday!

    Is it a beaver? I thought it was a squirrel. There are actually two that I've seen so far. They are identical. One is on the car wash outbuilding on the recently-closed Mapco Express at the southeast corner of Poplar and White Station. The other is on the east side wall of the underpass that leads under west-bound Poplar. Turn left towards the Hilton or Ridgeway Four Cinema off of Poplar and you will pass it on yoru right side.

    It's before the sushi gas station. The overpass across from the Target there. That's my favorite now too.

    I’ve noticed the squirrels are getting marked thru by some cat named 42. Wonder why he would deface someone else’s art?
