Local News

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – Members of a North Memphis community spent their Sunday giving a financial boost to their neighborhood.

The 8th Annual V&E Artwalk was hosted to raise money and awareness for the community owned section of the Greenline trial.

More than 70 artists had their work on display for sale, including some award winners from nearby middle and elementary schools.

The Artwalk is the largest annual event in the Vollintine-Evergreen neighborhood that attracts visitors from around the Mid-South.

“I have done it for the last five years, so rain or shine, we do this,” said artist Sherry Robinson. “My group, the Memphis Art Collective, actually supports the festival and helps pay for their marketing and their t-shirts and things, so we are a part of this.”

All money raised went to the V&E Greenline to keep the trail attractive and useful for all to enjoy.

While shopping for art and getting some exercise, people were also able to enjoy some food, live music, and art workshops by the Memphis Metal Museum.
