‘Brooks Outside’ brings art into the streets

by Michael Polzella

If you’ve walked the streets of Memphis lately, you’ve probably noticed the artwork that has been appearing on the sides of buildings throughout the city. As it turns out, these murals are no accident. They’re all part of an effort by the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art to bring selected works beyond the museum’s walls.

The public art exhibition, known as “Brooks Outside,” was started by French artist Julien de Casabianca. This past spring, city representatives helped the artist select 20 works from Brooks’ permanent collection to be placed around town.

Have you seen all the life-sized exhibits yet?
