Celebrating the Arts In Civic Center Plaza

July 5, 2010

June 22, 2010 was officially declared Arts Day in Memphis, an occasion celebrated with an artists market and arts fair in front of City Hall.  Artists and artisans from throughout the mid-south came downtown to exhibit and sell their wares while downtowners and City Hall employees were treated to performances by the Watoto de Afrika, Stax Music Academy, and New Ballet Ensemble.
