First Person Museum exhibit opens

A few of the objects and stories on display at the First Person Museum exhibit

After many months of hard work by lots of talented people, the First Person Museum exhibit opened at the Painted Bride Art Center on Friday. Woo hoo!

You can watch a short video about the project here, thanks to The Temple News.

You can read my past posts about the project here and here.

The exhibit will be open until December 18. If you're in the area, I hope you'll join us at one of the free gallery talks we're holding over the next week. All of the talks will take place at the Painted Bride Art Center at 230 Vine Street in Philadelphia. And did I mention that they're free?
