Artists are magnets for creative, entrepreneurial talent.

Here are some of the ways we're supporting them.

ArtsMemphis administers a number of programs focused on individual artists.  Use the links in this section to explore our current list of funding opportunities for individuals. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date on all our funding opportunities. 

Artist Advisory Council

ArtsMemphis created its Artist Advisory Council (AAC) in 2013 to help strengthen and galvanize the visual arts community, and to signal our investment in that community.  The AAC was formed to help guide ArtsMemphis in meeting the needs of Memphis’ visual artists. The AAC is a highly engaged volunteer group, comprising professional artists, art collectors, and art curators.

Current Council Members:

Maysey Craddock (AAC Founder and ArtsMemphis Board member)
Kathy Gale Uhlhorn (Co-Chair and ArtsMemphis Board Member)
Whitney Hardy (ArtsMemphis Board Member)
Victoria Jones
Anthony Lee
Ruthie O’Ryan
Cat Peña
Yancy Villa Calvo


ArtsMemphis' ArtsAccelerator grant program is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Hyde Family Foundations, Dianne and Myron Mall, Renasant Bank, and many other generous individuals.
