The brainchild of ArtsMemphis Board Member and acclaimed interior designer Greg Baudoin (Greg Baudoin Interiors), Art by Design 2016 was a smash-hit. Over the course of three days in the spring of 2016, the inaugural event raised over $120,000 for local arts groups and forged partnerships with nearly 40 businesses and nonprofits.  Thirteen teams of designers created unique rooms, showcasing a wide variety of art and décor.

With help from event co-chairs Greg Baudoin (Greg Baudoin Interior Design) and Ann Parker (Parker Design Studio), we’re once again bringing together some of Memphis’s most sought-after designers to create custom “vignettes” within a chic gallery showroom.  We’ll draw big crowds for this rare glimpse into the kind of interior design talent that is usually reserved for elite clientele.
