Next Stop: Memphis!
January 14, 2010
"River City" is the next stop on Rocco Landesman's "Art Works" tour across America. The NEA Chair has arrived in Memphis, Tennessee, at the invitation of Barbara and Pitt Hyde of the Hyde Family Foundations for a full day of activity tomorrow. Stops on Landesman's itinerary include Beale Street, the Civil Rights Museum, and the Stax Museum. He'll also visit the "Heart of the Arts" district in Midtown and join a roundtable discussion on music as an economic engine for cities at the Memphis Rock and Soul Museum with moderator Carol Coletta, President and CEO of CEOs for Cities. Check the NEA Newsroom for a complete schedule of the day's events.
As the Chairman gets ready for his street-level tour of Memphis, we've added the "Art Works Tour Map" to give a birds-eye view of the Art Works tour as it unfolds. Check it out.
