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.

Tempe History Museum approached the Tempe Union High School District photography teachers to see if they would lead a teen age version of the museum’s current featured exhibit: Humans of Tempe. Teachers and students jumped on board and gathered short interviews and informal portraits of random folks on the streets of Tempe.

Presented are the works of Desert Vista, Marcos de Niza, Mountain Pointe and Tempe High School students. With the combined informal portraits and short quotes, you will connect with real, ordinary people, and also gain a teen’s perspective on the inspiring, engaging and even depressing elements of the teen age world.

Exhibit runs through Jan. 13, 2019
