Museum of Broken Relationships

Gallery: Root Division
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 14th, 7 - 10 pm
Exhibition Dates: February 14-28, 2009
Address: 3175 17th Street (at S. Van Ness)

All of us have experienced the end of a loving relationship, whether with a lover, friend, or family member. Most of us have hidden away the objects that remind us of these painful heartbreaks. Have you ever wished there was a meaningful way of letting go of these 'things?' Have you ever wanted to preserve beautiful moments from your past? The Museum is an artistic project in which everyone can participate. It is a grand effort to honor the emotional heritage of humankind, offering the possibility to use the positive forces of creation and memory (instead of destruction and oblivion) in overcoming your broken heart.

Conceived of and created by Olinka Vištica and Dražen Grubiši? of Croatia, the Museum is on a world tour. The artists strongly believe in the arts as a path to emotional catharsis, and that by interacting with the intimate stories of others our cultural and political differences dissolve into a shared common experience.
