  • Memphis Brooks Museum of Art
    It all started with a fond remembrance. The Memphis Brooks Museum of Art first opened in 1916, funded by Bessie Vance Brooks in honor of her late husband. The original collection was small; just a few lovely paintings in an equally lovely building. Nearly a century later, however, the museum is one of the largest in the south, and houses thousands of pieces from antiquity to modernity. Size: the Museum began as an 8,200 square-foot building housing 19 paintings. Now, it encompasses more than 9,000 works of art and has grown to 86,000 square feet, thanks to the generosity of donors and a healthy diet of vegetables. The Building: inspired by the Morgan Library in New York City, the Beaux Arts-style edifice was built from Georgian marble Eye Catcher: Nam June Paik's "VIDE-O-BELISK", a towering structure made from vintage television cabinets and neon, which plays video and original music created for the piece by a number of artists Permanent Mainstay: the Samuel H. Kress Collection, which includes Italian Renaissance, Baroque, and Impressionist works by Pierre-August Renoir, Girolamo Romanino, and Sir Anthony van Dyck, among others Don't Miss: a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed tall back chair from 1904 Special Programs: Brooks Films screens award-winning films of many genres and styles in the Dorothy K. Hohenberg Auditorium; the Art Open Late series features musical performances and artist talks on Thursday nights
