2011 Preservation Series Begins in March - Mid Century ModernismMCA

The 2011 Memphis Heritage's Preservation Series will be meeting on Mondays in March to explore Mid Century Modernism in Memphis. Although we still relish our buildings from the nineteenth century and early twentieth century, it is time to understand and embrace the architecture and spirit of the middle of the twentieth century. These underappreciated Modernists structures are rapidly disappearing from the built environment as most have not been designated eligible for or listed on the National Register.

2011 Youth and Architecture ContestKid Paint

Memphis Heritage, Inc. is proud to announce the 8 th Architecture and Our Youth Design Competition for 4th - 12th grade level youth in Shelby County. Participants are asked to explore historic buildings and spaces around them through an art medium of their choice. In addition, an essay is submitted describing how the individual responds to the art emotionally and/or physically. Winners in each division receive prizes during the opening reception and will have their artwork on exhibit along with their written responses during May 2011. The goal of this exhibit is to communicate through images and words how our youth respond to the built environment. CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE DETAILS
