I am so honored to be a part of this year's Art by Design again. This year, my experience with Art by Design has been elevated and I am couldn’t be more excited. Benefitting ArtsMemphis, Art by Design is now a 4-day event series featuring the design artistry of 15 of Memphis’ top interior design teams. Demonstrating an astonishing array of talent, style, furnishings and art, the designers are collectively working to raise funds for over 60 arts organizations and individual artists in our city. I am so excited to curate another unique fashion experience that elevates the idea of the Turn this Room into An Outfit Series, again this year, using inspiration from each interior design vignette. I had the incredible enjoyment of being on the Steering Committee. In my role, I had the pleasure of planning programs and presentations for the General Admission Day.
