Making Memphis: 200 Years of Community @ The Pink Palace, Now through October 20th
Celebrating Memphis’ 200th birthday, the Pink Palace’s bicentennial exhibit examines the legendary events and iconic Memphians who have made this city what it is. Rather than a linear overview, the exhibit is structured as a web of stories around five themes: Geography and the Environment, Migration and Settlement, Commerce and Entrepreneurialism, Art and Entertainment, and Heritage and Identity. Rather than going from event to event, the idea is to show intersections and influences in Memphis’ past.
