About Us

Here at ArtsMemphis, we’re working to sustain Memphis’ world-renowned cultural vitality and strengthen local communities through the arts.  We're working to create a Memphis in which every individual feels pride in our city’s authentic cultural assets and experiences the impact of the arts in their lives.  Founded in 1963, we are one of the the nation's largest United Arts Funds.  In fiscal year 2019, we awarded 164 grants to 72 local arts groups and artists, totaling nearly $2.51 million in annual funding. All of this is possible because of the support we receive from more than 1,300 generous donors.
