Humans of Tempe
Exhibit Opens Thursday May 3 at 6:30 p.m.
Exhibit runs through March 24, 2019.
Tempe History Museum sent out 4 photographers to gather short interviews and informal portraits of random folks on the streets of Tempe. With the combined informal portraits and short quotes, visitors will connect with real, ordinary people and learn about people different than themselves. These portraits and stories remind us that we are all human – our problems may not be that bad, or that we are not alone, or that others share the same joy and pain.
Join us for an exhibit opening on Thursday, May 3 at 6:30 p.m. Meet the photographers and some of the people featured in the exhibit. Special guests: Walt Richardson and Zarco Guerrero Refreshments will be provided. Free Admission
