'If I Can Dream' at Brooks

Memphis Brooks Museum of Art has partnered with Graceland to host an international art contest in honor of the 35th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death. The exhibition's opening reception is this Saturday, July 21, at 10:30 am. 

Original artworks in all media on exhibit were created in response to the quote, “If I Can Dream.” A professional panel of judges selected the pieces for the exhibition that runs through Sept. 16. 

The judges awarded a first, second, and third place prize in three divisions: professional, non-professional, and youth. The remaining submissions are on exhibition via PowerPoint in the gallery. Visitors of the exhibition will have the opportunity to vote for “Fans Favorite” through the end of Elvis Week (August 19, 2012).
