Art For Jobs

The 8th Annual Art for Jobs

was a great success. See results below:




Empowering our neighbors in South Memphis to achieve financial stability.

Art for Jobs is an annual art sale that supports and provides visibility for our cause: employment and financial stability for our neighbors in the South Memphis community.  In our eighth year of Art for Jobs, we gathered over 100 artists and more than 500 patrons to celebrate and support some of the hardest working Memphians we know.
