Making Memphis - 200 Years of Community
Coming March 2019
The Pink Palace Family of Museums has a special exhibit planned for the upcoming Bicentennial of the City! The exhibit, titled “Making Memphis: 200 Years of Community,” brings together stories of the past and present and their influence on the future to illustrate the interconnected web of Memphis history. With its usage of technology, interactive components, art, and design, this exhibit is a multimedia, multisensory experience, encouraging visitors to experience Memphis’ history in new ways.
Bicentennial Locker Project
Individuals, classes, and community groups are invited to make a “mini-exhibit” in a school locker by creating a diorama that fills a 15” x 15” x 24” space in a way that represents their views about one of the exhibit’s five themes:
- Environment & Geography
- Migration & Settlement
- Commerce & Entrepreneurialism
- Heritage & Identity
- Arts & Entertainment
First, second, and third place winners will be chosen in each category. Winning submissions will be displayed as part of the Pink Palace’s installation of Making Memphis: 200 Years of Community.
