When: August 1st, 5-9pm
Where: Broad Avenue
After the success and excitement built up from Broad Avenue Demo Days, the community has decided to keep the momentum going around the once forgotten city center. Once a major center for growth and commerce centered around the railroad, Broad Avenue was soon abandoned along with the railroad. With the help of artists, young professionals, and Memphians Broad Avenue is quickly making its comeback. To better acquaint yourself with the happenings on Broad Avenue and to show off the progress it has made, Broad Avenue will host a Sunset Quest. The Sunset Quest will consist of a scavenger hunt of task to complete while interacting with artists and business owners. If you complete all quests you will be entered to win a awesome “Broad Avenue Swag Bag” featuring swag from Broad businesses.
Here’s just a few of the quests:
Collage Dance Collective – Complete a dance position
T Clifton Art – Provide feedback on the design drawings for the Water Tower Depot
NJ Woods Gallery – Name that artist
Found Studio – Take silly selfies – don’t forget to post with #broadave and #foundstudio
Other happenings on the 18th:
Muddy’s Bake Shop will have a pop-up in their new kitchen.
Found Studio offering professional head shots for just $25.
NJ Woods will be featuring current work by NJ Woods and Marie Babb
If you aren’t the scavenger hunting type, there will be plenty of other reasons to visit. The Cove will have an extended happy hour with a 2-for-1 oyster special, and all the shops and galleries will have late hours.
