at the Hyde Family Foundations
ArtsMemphis 2013 Culinary Series Homegrown Treasures party was held on Thursday, September 12 at the Hyde Family Foundations. We had a great time on the river, enjoying the work and company of Memphis’ most talented artists. Andrew Adams, Justin Fox Burks and Amy Lawrence gave us a delicious culinary experience, inspired by the Foundations’ fabulous collection of local art. We heard the sounds of Jim Spake and Joe Restivo, saw the Hattiloo’s energetic rendition of Grease and were captivated by Ballet Memphis’ soulful, original work. Stylist Erick New’s beautiful design and decor set the tone for the night, and Memphis College of Art alum and instructor, Derrick Dent captured the special spirit of the evening with his drawings.

While all of the artists shone in different ways, the thread running through the evening was that they are truly our homegrown treasures. From the culinary arts to the performing arts, the level of talent in our city is astounding, and the energy surrounding them is palpable. We are so thrilled to have The Hyde Family Foundations as a partner and supporter, both in this party and in our mutual commitment to investing in Memphis’ authentic cultural assets to make this world-class creative climate possible. Our mission could not be accomplished without supporters and stakeholders like you, and we hope that you are as proud of Memphis’ vibrant, diverse arts community as we are.
