Rise Up Memphis Art! Rise Up Memphis Nature!

Sculpture in Overton ParkTomorrow at 10 a.m., the Citizens to Preserve Overton Park are holding a hike through the Old Forest. Come show your support for this threatened natural beauty, and learn something. Something I learned: don't touch the furry vines.

Also, the artbutcher reported yesterday that operating funds and the Percent-for-Art programs for the very efficient Urban Art Commission were under threat in the present Memphis budget cycle. The latest word is the crisis has passed, but stay tuned to the artbutcher, always.

As I understand it the UAC alert was a bit overstated. It's important not to overreact to the ritual funding dance.

It's also important to remind folks that UAC funding is peanuts.

You are right, but the UAC issue gave the title symmetry so I kept it in.
