Sketches from the Stax Museum of American Soul Music

In February the Memphis Urban Sketchers met at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music. What an amazing experience! It is a great museum, and I highly recommend a trip through it whether you are sketching or not. (But why not sketch, right?)

The museum has artifacts from every Stax artist, including clothes, accessories and musical instruments.

The recording studio and engineer booth was rebuilt to how it looked in the early days of Stax Records.

Everything belonging to Isaac Hayes was probably the most interesting to sketch!

This was the highlight of the day. We asked if they could stop Isaac Hayes's gold Cadillac from spinning on its turntable long enough for us to sketch it. And they did! What a treat!
