Tigers Around Town

See all 100 Tigers

All 100 statues are on the prowl in Memphis!

The Cat Is Out of the Bag!

On 9.10.11@12 noon the U of M Alumni Association Let the Cat Out of the Bag! At this event, ALL 100 of the Tiger statues were gathered on the U of M campus for the community to see together in one place. Thank you to our Tiger family that came to welcome the Tigers to town! We would also like to thank each of our sponsors and artists that made this project possible.

In honor of the University's Centennial, the Alumni Association placed life-size Tiger statues around the city of Memphis in January 2012. Each statue has been uniquely decorated with artwork by Mid-South artists, students and alumni. The Tiger statues are sponsored by local fans, alumni and businesses and are currently on display at their chosen locations or on the U of M campus.

It is our hope that Tigers Around Town will not only bring many alumni back to campus but that it will also help build awareness of the integral relationship between the University and the city of Memphis.
