Art Attack

Art Attack

City Council Chair Berlin Boyd has described UrbanArt as a "quasi governmental" and failed organization. It's a harsh, and not entirely accurate, assessment of a 20-year-old independently managed not-for-profit group that made Memphis a "percent for art" city, transforming the landscape and public expectations in ways that can only be understood by juxtaposing what was with what is now so ubiquitous it's easily taken for granted.
