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 Somerville Public Library has loaned a cup and saucer from the library’s antique dish set, once used yearly at holiday parties, Duck Village resident Frank Cresta loaned a concrete eagle and pedestal that usually resides in his impressive topiary and art-filled yard, Martha Friend has lent a collection of ‘pairs’ and Carolyn Grace has loaned her mother and grandmother’s wedding dresses (Carolyn and her daughter Ruth holding Carolyn’s mother’s wedding photo.)
______________________________________________________________________________
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!
