Poetry Panels

Artist

Urban Art Commission

For the Urban Art Commission’s 10th anniversary, the “Poetry Panels” were installed and painted by volunteers. Eight popular songs lyrics about Memphis were written in white on top of red 4 feet high wooden panels spanning 48-feet in width. A few of the artists featured are Roy Acuff, Big Bill Broonszy, Jerry Lewis and Rufus Thomas.
