Jamin is seen here working on an Artist’s Wall for Art for Jobs at Advance Memphis. This 8′ x 8′ mural will be available for purchase at the event.

ALL OF CARTER’S WORK FOR ART FOR JOBS 2016 CAN BE SEEN IN THE ONLINE CATALOG.

Art for Jobs 2016 will be held in a new location: The Advance Memphis Warehouse. With more space, comes more opportunity for creativity, and this year we’re introducing Artist’s Walls.

We’re working with a few local artists who will adopt an 8′ x 8′ wall and make it their own. You can learn more about Artist’s Walls, here. We are honored to have Jamin Carter joining us for this opportunity; he’s pictured at left beginning work on his piece.
