Art By Design is a unique event series that brings together over a dozen interior design teams to create custom “vignettes” within a chic gallery showroom. Every year, we draw a crowd of hundreds to an exciting mix of events, including an exclusive VIP dinner and cocktail receptions. All proceeds from sponsorships and ticket sales go to ArtsMemphis and help us award grants to more than 80 local arts groups and artists.
Since it began in 2016, Art By Design has...
April 5 - 8, 2018
The Historic Pipkin Building at the Memphis Fairgrounds
Ann Parker (Parker Design Studio)
Becca Gaines (B. Gaines Interior Design)
2018 Event Co-Chairs
Amy and Cameron Mann
Greg Baudoin (Greg Baudoin Interior Design)
Event Founder, ArtsMemphis Board Member
Guests will be the very first to see the vignettes, which will surround them as they enjoy a seated dinner. In addition, there will be live entertainment and conversation with some of the participating designers. Each VIP Dinner ticket comes with unlimited showroom access during all three General Admission Days.
Guests will stroll through the exhibition with drinks and heavy hors d'oeuvres. They will enjoy some of Memphis’ finest live entertainment and mingle with the designers.
This year, for the first time, we will open the showroom to the general public for three days. We expect to attract a diverse crowd of all ages. There will be a variety of special presentations and activities including a talk by nationally acclaimed interior designer and author Marshall Watson, hosted by the Decorative Arts Trust.
