Todd Richardson | Crosstown Arts

Episode #014: Todd Richardson | Crosstown Arts

Ground breaking for Crosstown Arts is coming up and Todd Richardson came onto the podcast to discuss. We learn about the past five years of development, future plans, some floor plans, and how it all came together. Surprising to hear just how well things went during planning phases from great reception, to partners with similar plans, and how having art history background worked in Todd’s favor. Crosstown wants you to know that you too can be a part of this historic building, they will be looking for residents to help occupy what looks to be a premier culture center in Memphis.
