…and we’re still working. Prices range from $20 to $4000, so there’s something for everyone. 7 artists have created 8×8 free-standing artist’s walls: some are murals, some feature as many as 12 pieces of art. We’ve cataloged some of the art here, much more is available!
9. Great food from local farmers.
The chef team at A Moveable Feast is working closely with Bring It Food Hub to source produce from local farmers. Fresh veggies, fruits and dips will cure those after-work munchies while you browse.
8. The party’s in the warehouse.
A year ago, we bought a warehouse just blocks from our offices & classrooms. This year, Art for Jobs is happening there: 575 Suzette, 38126. Learn more about what we’re doing in this 24,000 square feet here.
7. Plenty of parking – including valet!
Want to park yourself? A parking lot is just across the street from the warehouse at 853 Crump Blvd, with police escorts to help you cross safely. Want to valet? Thanks to Art for Jobs sponsors Triumph Bank, we’ll also have the services of Southern Valet available, with fees & tip covered by Triumph!
6. Learn more about social enterprise.
There are a lot of crazy smart Memphians structuring their businesses in ways that turn a profit AND create opportunities for struggling neighborhoods and underemployed neighbors. See some of this in action at Art for Jobs. Sponsored by SouthernSun Asset Management, a local business that supports a stronger Memphis.
Art for Jobs is a show and sale, not an auction. This means you don’t have to awkwardly try to outbid your friends (or that serious shopper who keeps blocking you out) AND it means an artist’s work won’t be undervalued. It also means first come, first serve – so see you at 5!
What’s a tilth? Take a few of Memphis’s great food and garden non-profits, add great people, and new offices in the Advance Memphis warehouse, and you’ll start to see the future of healthy food, people, and places in Memphis. Explore it all at Art for Jobs.
Make plans now to be at Art for Jobs! We’ll be going strong from 5-8pm at 575 Suzette. You can see details on the website or the Facebook event page, where you can let us know you’ll be there. Get a sitter or bring the family – we look forward to seeing you!
The mission of Advance Memphis is to empower adults in South Memphis to break cycles of unemployment, establish economic stability, reconcile relationships, and restore dignity through knowledge, resources, and skills by the power of Jesus Christ.
