Museums, Mementos and Memory: A Pop-Up Museum
Mar 22 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Eastern Illinois University’s Booth Library will display the exhibit, “A Question of History: Public History in Illinois,” from March 30 through July 31, 2017.  The public is invited to view this exhibit at any time during the library’s business hours.

The exhibit was produced by students in EIU’s Historical Administration graduate program. For more information about the exhibit and related programming visit the web page here.

As part of the exhibit, “Museums, Mementos and Memory: A Pop-Up Museum” will be offered.

The program description is as follows: “American museums have a higher attendance than all major-league sporting events and theme parks combined. Hosting over 840 million visitors annually, these institutions are charged with protecting our cultural heritage, as well as educating the public about this shared heritage. Through the sale of souvenirs, postcards and educational materials, these institutions encourage visitors to commemorate their experience, engage in further research and share their newly learned knowledge with others.

“Souvenirs from museums are mementos of an experience. Examining souvenirs can bring back vivid memories of locations and events, both local and exotic. Souvenirs can also help stimulate forgotten knowledge about associated objects or experiences. This pop-up museum explores the relationship between souvenirs, memory and place by pairing experiences with mementos. Why do people collect souvenirs? Why is it important to remember these places and events? Are these places even worth remembering? Through this analysis, participants will gain a better understanding of their personal connections with historic sites and museums.

“Pop-up museums are temporary exhibits that people create through participation. The HA Class of 2017 will accept souvenirs collected at historical sites and museums by students, faculty and community members for this exhibit. Items will be displayed alongside quotes from participants and passersby during the length of the pop-up museum and returned afterward. In order to loan items to be included in the exhibit, please contact Jessica Craig at jlcraig3@eiu.edu.

“Feel free to drop by during the exhibit to share your thoughts about the importance of public history, souvenirs and museums.”

During the spring semester, Booth Library’s regular hours are 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 1 a.m. Sunday. For more information call 581-6072, or find the library on Facebook or Twitter.
