She Tempe is a public art project that was installed in September of 2017 and initiated by the Downtown Tempe Authority. DTA commissioned 8 local female artists to create custom works of art, each featuring the artists’ portrayal of women, to be wrapped onto 14 news racks along Mill Avenue.
She Tempe is another project executed to further an existing objective of DTA to curate public art installations throughout Downtown Tempe. This project celebrates local creative talent, enhances the sense of place and helps create an engaging pedestrian experience in Downtown Tempe. A walking map is installed on each news rack to guide downtown residents, employees and visitors through their own walking tour.
