In the mid-1970s First Tennessee Bank joined forces with what was then called the Midtown Council and created a full-color marketing brochure that praised the virtues of Midtown, Memphis as a way to stir investment back into the area.
“It’s the way Midtown Memphians do things,” the booklet said. And it became a snapshot in time, immortalizing Midtown businesses and a Midtown era that has changed much since.
Over four decades later Midtown is thriving and rapidly changing. And we at StoryBoard Memphis have summoned Memphis College of Art artists by immortalizing today’s Midtown with a similar snapshot: this time with a hand-drawn map of Midtown, complete with all your favorite landmarks and your businesses.
With this once-in-a-lifetime effort, we are also paying tribute to the legacy of the Memphis College of Art. Help us celebrate and honor the MCA, before it leaves us, by including your Midtown business. It will end up as one of those whimsical – but accurate – neighborhood maps sure to charm young and old for decades to come. Proceeds will go toward this special section and to high-quality 42″x30″ prints suitable for framing.
Just $35 to be listed and enumerated in this special map insert; $60 for a listing and your business logo around the map; $250 for map neighborhood co-sponsorship; $450 as a map co-presenter.
Please include your business name and street address as it applies.
