Stax Museum, Crosstown Arts partner for ‘Give a Damn! Music + Activism at Stax Records’

From The Daily  Memphian: The main artifact for a new exhibition at Crosstown Arts is Isaac Hayes’ 14-foot-long, custom-made, red velvet office desk complete with white Formica top. Previously, the desk had been in storage for more than a year, after the Stax Museum of American Soul Music recovered it from the owner of East Nashville vintage boutique, The Hip Zipper.

According to the museum’s executive director, Jeff Kollath, the desk had been in a house in Nashville, where two women were hoping to open a vintage clothing store and use the desk as the checkout counter.
