About the Project

How has the city of Memphis developed since its founding in 1819? Making Memphis: 200 Years of Community explores the history of Memphis, how it has changed over the past two centuries, and what’s to come.  This exhibit offers a powerful look at what the city has faced over the years and challenges visitors to ask questions, think critically, and talk about the issues and their experiences.                                    

Individuals, classes, and community groups were 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                                         

Winning submissions will be displayed as part of the Pink Palace’s installation of Making Memphis: 200 Years of Community.
