[somartscouncil] CALLING ALL SOMERVILLE RESIDENTS: WE WANT YOUR STUFF! - [somartscouncil]
CALLING ALL SOMERVILLE RESIDENTS! The Somerville Museum presents: Our Stories, Our Stuff, Our Somerville – and we want YOUR stuff! Lend us something - drop your stuff off at the museum on Saturday, January 19, 10am-4pm. The exhibition Our Stories, Our Stuff, Our Somerville will be a celebration of the people of Somerville and their life experiences as expressed through their stuff! The exhibit will bring people together by bringing their things together at the Somerville Museum - and the convergence of these things, and the stories that go with them, will offer a renewed sense of community at a time of rapid change for Somerville. The museum is calling all individuals, families and organizations of Somerville to lend a meaningful, everyday object to this exhibition. We are looking for things like: photos and ephemera ...wedding keepsakes, family objects ...souvenirs: sports, military, school, travel ...clothing, uniforms, costumes ...music, movies, books ...hobbies: automotive, games, carpentry, sewing, etc ...things you collect ...anything else that tells a story you want to share! Does not need to be Somerville related or a collection – it’s really anything you would like to lend! LEND US YOUR STUFF: drop things off at the Somerville museum on Saturday, January 19, between 10am-4pm. The museum is located 1 Westwood Road, Somerville, at the corner of Central Street and Westwood Road. Our Stories, Our Stuff, Our Somerville will open with a public reception on February 14, 2019, 6-8pm. All are welcome!
