Participate in building a collaborative exhibit with us! Oscar Wilde wrote that, “Memory... is the diary that we all carry about with us.” The Elmhurst Historical Museum invites you to share a memory that tells your personal story. Participants will place an item in a Mason jar that sparks a memory, and then write a few lines about the object’s story on the Memory Jar tag. Bring your own item to display or use provided craft supplies. The jars will be displayed in the first floor museum gallery throughout the month and may be collected to take home at the end of the exhibit.
