Saturday, September 28 is the opening reception of the Cotton Museum’s newest temporary art exhibit, Rotan Switch: an Exhibit of Photographs by Lisa McCord. Through compelling and personal photographs, the collection documents life on one of the last tenant run cotton farms to operate along the Mississippi River. During the opening reception from 6pm to 9pm guests will have the opportunity to meet the artist, sip beer from the local High Cotton Brewery, and enjoy live music by the Swamp Katz. The event is free and open to the public.
The event is part of the Cotton Museum’s “Making the Delta” program, supported by Arts Memphis, the Tennessee Arts Commission and the Downtown Memphis Commission. The exhibit will remain on view at the Cotton Museum (65 Union Avenue) through October 20, 2013. The opening reception is at 6pm on September 28 and is free and open to the public.
Making the Delta is funded by an Arts Build Communities grant – a program funded by the Tennessee General Assembly and administered in cooperation with the Tennessee Arts Commission and ArtsMemphis.
