Get to Know ArtsMemphis!

ArsMemphis serves as a vital support system for local artists and cultural institutions. Their mission revolves around ensuring that Memphis remains a dynamic hub for artistic expression. Their commitment goes beyond financial support–they’re dedicated to fostering an inclusive, creative environment accessible to all.

At ARTSmemphis, our purpose as a granting organization is to grow the foundation of art for our city with diligent, thoughtful, diverse, and intentional support. While we have distributed over $94 million since 1963 to artists and arts organizations, our support is not simply through good stewardship of donor dollars but also by providing financial guidance, organizational advice, marketing support, and networking opportunities and connections. 

Whether a donor, educator, artist, stagehand, or an audience member, together, we are all contributors to the arts.”
