Here’s another amazing project out of Memphis. Last summer, Karen Golightly raised $2,635 on ioby to fund the first-annual Paint Memphis, a weekend-long graffiti festival that brought 70 artists out from Memphis and around the world. The theme was “Revival,” and the place was a North Memphis neighborhood that had, as one resident put it, “fallen through the cracks.”
The result? A new 1/3 – mile landmark of vibrant color and North Memphis pride.
