About the Exhibition

The imaginative exhibition features a series of self-portraits, a wall painting and an installation of objects sourced from the museum’s storage, walkways, archives and the Permanent Collection. Many of these objects are recognizable by our friends who have been with us since we opened our doors in 1987! Come see how this exhibition raises the idea that everyone can be regarded as a museum that collects and preserves objects, information and memories.
