Arts Access is an annual outreach program coordinated by ArtsMemphis and sponsored by Baptist Memorial Health Care that ensures the arts are available to those who can't always afford the price of admission. Thanks to more than 15 participating arts organizations, free tickets to arts events and exhibitions are available year-round for EBT cardholders, TennCare/Church Health Center patients, Tickets for Troops member families and Pop Up ArtsFest attendees.
