Smart City Memphis Features Ballet Memphis

Longtime ArtsMemphis grantee Ballet Memphis, and its brand new Overton Square headquarters are featured in a recent article in the online urban planning hub, Smart City Memphis.  The article praises the project for visionary recognition of how the arts could reactivate an unused site, formerly occupied by the defunct French Quarter Hotel.

The article in Smart City also notes that the Ballet building contributes to the increasing exciting arts ecosystem in Overton Square:

[I]ts presence punctuates the vision of Overton Square as an arts district, and we can’t imagine a street in any city that can match the creativity found on Cooper Street in the forms of Mrs. Pugh, Ekandayo Bandele at Hattiloo Theatre, and Jackie Nichols at Playhouse on the Square.
