Check Out The Growing Street Art in The Edge District
Riding down the streets of Memphis’ Edge District has gotten way more colorful thanks to Paint Memphis, the annual festival that produces the largest collaborative mural in Tennessee.
About Paint Memphis
The one-day festival brings 100 talented artists from all over the world to and throughout the streets of Memphis. The locations of all the murals live in The Edge District, in The Ravine, and a few spots nearby. A few days prior to the big event, you could see frameworks of the murals form on sides of once bland buildings. But don’t be fooled, good things take time! Muralists have the week to complete their masterpiece. The Paint Memphis festival builds hype, awareness, and appreciation for the growing street art.
Just a Recap
If you missed this year's festival, don’t worry, there's always next year. Plus, the organization puts on art events/workshops throughout the year. But just to recap for 2023, The Ravine was filled with art enthusiasts enjoying live music, art vendors, food trucks, live painting and lots more fun.
