Humans of Tempe

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.

Main Exhibit Gallery
The main exhibition hall, entitled, Tempe: Distinct, Diverse, Dynamic, is the heart of the Tempe History Museum. Here the story of Tempe is told interactively through a variety of media and displays. The exhibition explores the history of Tempe using a thematic approach focusing on four topics: Surviving in the Desert, Building Our Community, Living Together and College Town.

Community Room Gallery
The Community Room hosts temporary art exhibits around its perimeter.
