There’s no place like home… There’s no place like Memphis and the people who are proud to call this place home.
WKNO will display a very special Gallery Ten Ninety-One art exhibition in February called A Memphis of Hope Art Show. The exhibit provides an opportunity for Memphis artists of diverse ages, cultures, and backgrounds to share through their art a message of hope, love, harmony, peace, unity, and solidarity for our city at a time when the brightness here is being dimmed and challenged with senseless crime.
The artwork that is featured in A Memphis of Hope Art Show has been created by each artist to inspire hope, love, unity, and peace for our city. The hope is that this coming together through art will send an impactful message to others and an assurance that there is still good coming out of Memphis. There is still a hope in its people, in its celebration of unity, in its camaraderie of kindness, and in the hearts of its artists. The exhibition showcases works of paintings, photography, pottery, quilting, sculptures, jewelry, or metal ornaments in this exhibition of Memphis hope.
This project will open in honor of Black History Month, and a reception will be held at the WKNO Digital Media Center on Saturday, February 3, 2024, from 2 – 5 p.m. The exhibition will be open to the public for viewing beginning February 5, 2024, until February 29, 2024.
