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

This is an album cover for a soul compilation by Stax Records. At the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, this is one of the several album covers on display. I love it bc it features a Black mermaid. I’m currently awaiting a portrait being done by artist Edwin McSwine of a Black mermaid. As soon as I get it…and I pray it’s very soon, it’s gonna hang on my living room wall. #memphis #art #culture #life #stax #soul #music #blackness #dope
