We walk by each other all the time and make assumptions about where other people come from and what is important to them. The Museum of You was a temporary installation at Philadelphia's renowned public space, the Porch. The museum celebrated the diverse yet shared experiences of things we value. Passersby become visitors to the museum by writing a story about an object they value or cherish. They are then encouraged to hang the story of the object to clothespins strung from umbrellas. The shared stories then become the "museum," as participants and guests to the space take time to slow down and take in what others have shared.
