Paint Memphis sponsoring SoulFood 5

Paint Memphis is sponsoring a one-day festival, Soul Food 5, on October 1, 2016 that will bring over 100 artists together to paint the flood wall adjacent to the proposed Chelsea Greenline. The wall starts at the Chelsea trailhead, at N. Evergreen and Chelsea and goes west for .3 miles, making it the biggest collaborative mural in Memphis. Though a one-day event, we have expanded this wall into a permission wall, legal and sanctioned by the city, a place where artists can show of their talents and reflect the spirit of our city. We have established a list of local and regional painters for the event as well as guidelines for painting: no obscenities, no gang-related imagery.!
