Orion Gives Back: UrbanArt

urban artlogoUrbanArt has been working for 19 years to make Memphis a more beautiful place.  We’re proud to name them a February 2016 recipient of Orion Gives Back.

UrbanArt’s stated mission is to enhance the cultural vibrancy of our communities through the development of public art. They partner with a variety of stakeholders including neighborhood groups, private developers, and municipal authorities to produce artworks of wide ranging media.  Since their founding in 1997, the nonprofit has created a substantial public art collection of close to 100 works.  And Memphis wouldn’t be home without them!
