Dr. Withers’ last working studio on 333 Beale Street was named in his honor by the City of Memphis is 1995. In February 2011, The Withers Colleciton Museum and Gallery was opened to the public and houses 7,000 square feet of Memphis and broader American history. We also utilize our downtown footprint to host public panel discussions to engage and educate the community we serve. At our Talk About it Tuesdays forum, we discuss relevant topics such as Financial Literacy, the Civil Rights Movement of the 60’s and today, College Applications and many other topics relevant to modern life. Additionally, the Museum serves as an historic venue for private events. The Studio Lounge can be converted to house luncheons, wedding events, parties, receptions, corporate events, scholastic events, and various other functions!
