The Words Matter art show is bringing local writers, artists and performers together. Six groups of Mid-South creatives have been putting together multimedia works that will be presented on Thursday, November 12th at the Crosstown Arts Gallery.
This is an event where process and product will be on display. Each of the six projects began with words - a literary contribution from a writer. From there, a combination of artists and performers extended that creation in their own media - visual artists, musicians, dancers, actors and filmmakers found collective expression and inspiration from the language.
Memphis has been making some bold and exciting collaborations across artistic disciplines and we want to be a leader to encourage that.
Other than the project starting with the written word, there were no rules. The artists were free to do their art.
On Thursday November 12th, we'll have a party where you can see what the groups have done, visit with the artists, and experience what some of our town's top talent!
Come on out on November 12th and experience the creativity. This event benefits Literacy Mid-South.
