This weekend, ArtsMemphis is unveiling something called ArtsAccelerator.
It’s a new incentive grant for visual artists, and what’s important about it is it’s the first in the organization’s history to directly support individual, working artists.
ArtsMemphis will start allocating the grants this fall. Meanwhile, there’s a kickoff celebration at Crosstown Arts Sat., Aug. 10, from 8 p.m. to midnight, launching ArtsAccelerator.
It’s free and open to the public, with donations welcome. There will be free refreshments including beer and wine, the Fuel food truck will be there, there will be a DJ dance party, and more.
For more information, head on over to the Facebook page for the event.
