MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Art lovers got a chance to experience the "Carpenter Art Garden" art show in the Binghamton area Friday night.

Hundreds of people attended Flicker Studios, which is just blocks away from the garden.

Organizers have been providing after-school programs in the neighborhood for two years, and Friday night was a chance for students to debut their work and raise money.

"We're giving kids a chance to see things outside their neighborhood," said Program Coordinator Megan Banaszek. "And it's giving them pride and ownership of their neighborhood. It's fun."

The garden continues to expand, with plan to build a bike repair workshop for kids and expand programming to several days a week.
