TICKLED PINK! “Adventures Begin here!” at the memphis pink palace museum, just as they do in the memphis downtowner magazine. every issue takes us to new places, introduces us to interesting people, and outlines exciting events around the city. At the pink palace, our mission is to inspire people to learn how history, science, technology, and nature shape the mid-south — a mission that runs parallel with the downtowner’s. Just as our museum is filled with rich collections, thought-provoking exhibitions, and engaging programs, so, too, are the pages of this citywide magazine. i was pleasantly surprised when i realized that the editorial was always consistent, readable, and interesting. it’s packed with a lot of valuable information, as well. even though the name says “downtowner,” it’s really all about memphis, and the pink palace is all about memphis, too. in short, advertising with the downtowner is a good fit. the pink palace audience and purpose mirrors that of the downtowner’s, where both institutions strive to inform, delight, inspire, and promote the positive aspects of memphis. the downtowner helps us stay in the pink! ronda cloud, Marketing/Public Relations Manager memphis pink palace Family of museums 3050 Central • 320-6320 BEFORE THERE WAS A MEMPHIS: SPEAKERS! the New Madrid Earthquakes of 1811-1812 !!!
