Art in The Loop will be staged, April 5 - 7, on Ridgeway Loop Road (between Briarcrest Ave & Ridge Bend Rd), near Poplar & I-240, in east Memphis, TN.
This unique site is situated in between 1.5 million square feet of high level offices and one of Memphis' most exclusive residential areas (the founders of FedEx & AutoZone live right around the corner). In addition to offices, the area boasts several hotels (including the Memphis Hilton), high end shopping, restaurants, and a Cinema dedicated to films attractive to the over 45 audience; there are also two large churches in view of our festival site.
Art in The Loop will be entering its second year, but there is a bit more history than that: Art in The Loop replaced a similar exhibition, with an additional two years' run, called Art Squared; that festival was named one of the Top 200 Art Festivals in the US by Sunshine Artists' Magazine. The re-location to Art in The Loop was undertaken for its proximity to high-income households, as well as offering easier artist move-in, and better parking.
Art in The Loop will be staged to the accompaniment of classical & swing music (intermittent performances), and complimented by internationally themed food trucks.
Our media sponsors are WKNO TV & FM (PBS & NPR stations), and Memphis Magazine; each will run promos for this event. We also mail postcards to more than 10K people who have purchased art at our events over the past 5 years, as well as 1,000 more to household in the immediate area. We also have posters, flyers, social media & extensive PR placements.
"You will never know how much we appreciate all of the work and attention to detail you give this show. Remember that it is a wonderful opportunity and one of the few venues where hand crafted gifts area available during this time frame." Louise & Don Coulson
