Authentic Stories: Jeannie Tomlinson

Some people just land in their dream job.  Others go out and forge that job for themselves.  That's Jeannie Tomlinson.  She's a punk rock goddess and a globetrotting addict.  But most of all, she's a dedicated staff member at The Metal Museum, one of our city's most distinctive organizations...and (natch!) an ArtsMemphis grantee.

We think Jeannie hits the nail on the head (with a giant forge hammer!) when she describes the impact that ArtsMemphis funding has had on the Metal Museum:

The support we get from ArtsMemphis helps us [with all the] things we do: the classes we offer, the community outreach we do.  We couldn't do that without the support of ArtsMemphis.
