Free Memphis Outdoor Art Experience: Brooks Outside
More about the Brooks Museum
If you love art—both classical and contemporary—a stop at the Brooks Museum in Overton Park is a must-do in Memphis. From permanent exhibits featuring 17th century European works to sculptures from the African Diaspora to modern Southern artists like Carroll Cloar, the Brooks will appeal to any art fan.
The Brooks is open Wednesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. (and until 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday). Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for Seniors, $5 for youth and students, and free for children 6 and under.
On Wednesdays, it’s free admission and open until 8 p.m.
In addition, visiting Exhibitions like the Maurice Sendak display (Oct. 7 - Jan. 8, you may know his work from “Where To Wild Things Are”) and special works like the Brooks Outside series means there’s always something new to see.
The artwork is by Sydney-based art collaborative, Atelier Sisu.
I loved meeting blog friends Nola and her grownup Celeste Daugherty (above) when I stopped by to explore the exhibit!
