The themes of transportation and transformation are core to this exhibit. The exhibit opening features Mr. Mudd and Mr. Gold, a duo that performs everything from hard-driving melodic folk, to dirty suitcase-drum-infused acoustic rock, to banjo-driven pop, to soul-infused updates of 1940s acoustic blues.
On view will be panels with photographs and an overview of the train history of Tempe, special topics focused on bridges, special trains, stations and train companies that operated in Tempe. A number of artifacts related to trains are on display, some from the museum collection, others from the Arizona Railway Museum in Chandler and from private collectors.
Celebrate the opening of Trains of Tempe and Train Stories on November 10th at 6 p.m. The featured exhibit runs through October 8, 2017.
This exhibition made possible through the support of AZ Humanities and the City of Tempe, Tempe Historical Society.
