The Memphis Art Project (MAP) is a beautifully designed way-finding device to creative landmarks in Memphis.
Funded by the Lynne and Henry Turley Memphis Center at Rhodes College, MAP provides images, locations, and information to a growing number of public artwork including graffiti, outdoor murals and sculptures, temporary street art, and more. MAP limits the scope of the project to artwork located within Memphis city limits in spaces that are free and open to the public during daytime hours.
Showcasing public art in Memphis for artists, residents, and visitors.
MAP envisions a Memphis that encourages creative placemaking as a means to empower communities. MAP is a platform for the voices of residents and artists in an effort to provide visibility to public art and creative places.
