Authentic Stories: Patricia Jimenez

Did you know that ArtsMemphis works with over 20 local partner organizations to provide free tickets to local performances and exhibitions for those who face financial barriers.  The program is called ArtsAccess and Patty Jimenez is a perfect example of the impact that it makes.

I'm so grateful that ArtsMemphis makes the ArtsAccess Program possible.

– Patty Jimenez 

Thanks to ArtsAccess, Patty is able to give her kids a love of the arts -- a love that Patty, herself, first discovered as a child growing up in Mexico City.  When she's not refurbishing second-hand items or cheering on her daughters at swim practice, Patty is out with her family at an arts event.  Check out Patty's #MEMthentic story below:
