MY MUSEUM

MY MUSEUM is a working archive for my life. Using my knowledge and experience from working at a collecting institution, I present the artifacts in MY MUSEUM in a way that educates the present in preparation for the future. Each accession in MY MUSEUM is to be considered a work-in-progress, subject to review (by me) the older I become. As a result, MY MUSEUM will constantly change. The goal of MY MUSEUM is to cultivate an appreciation for a life lived, from the mundane to the extraordinary.

The title of each artifact in MY MUSEUM is its catalogue number. For example: 2020 (year) – 001 (accession number) – 001 (object ID).
