Belz Museum and Gallery
Peabody Place is part of an ambitious downtown renewal effort that includes complexes of restaurants, shops and apartments. Developer Jack Belz and his wife Marilyn have put their private collection of Chinese art on display for the public in a 7,500 square-foot gallery. Some of the ivory and jade pieces date back to the Manchu Dynasty of the 17th century. Stroll around Peabody Place and see what is attracting new residents to the downtown area.
i was by no means a fan of chinese art before i saw this place. it costs less than 10 dollars to get in and i was blown away. i have never seen anything like it. i have never seen a better collection. the things the chinese have done with jade and mammoth tusks is ouot of this world.
I loved the amazing collection of art pieces that covered a wide spectrum of styles and cultures. Although, the museum began as a Chinese museum focusing on the Qing Dynasty, it has expanded over time to include fine art pieces from Italy, Russia and Israel, as well as beuatiful contemporary sculptures. The gift shop was well stocked, beautifully kept and unique in its stock. The prices for tickets are more than fair with over 20,000 square feet since they expanded!!!!! And the new video introduction with Jack Belz is informative as well as well put together. The staff is very educated about their subject and more than willing to answer any questions....oh, and they have great learning stations through out the Museum.over all, There was Jade, Ivory, Bronzes, Cinnabar, Pottery, Paintings, Scrolls, and Cloisonne..... Amazing place in Memphis, TN!!!!!!
