So, if you’re ever visiting or planning to visit #Memphis & you see these artsy tigers as you move through the city, allow me to explain why. My 2-time alma mater, the University of Memphis has these tigers commissioned for its’ 100 year anniversary in 2012. To commemorate, they had 100 of these tigers, which is the school’s mascot, crafted. Some of the tigers were sold while the rest are seen around campus. Every last one of these tigers are different which makes them rather dope. #memphis #art
