Beyond the Picket Fence Exhibit Opening Reception

Join us for a free opening reception for our newest exhibit, Beyond the Picket Fence: The Places & Spaces We Call Home!

“Home” is something we all know the meaning of – until we try to put it into words. Is home your house, your town, or your community? Is it defined by a physical location, by a feeling, or by the people around you? Can a person find a sense of home in the face of displacement, incarceration, institutionalization, or disaster? Can someone be unhoused, and still have a place they call home?

Beyond the Picket Fence: The Places & Spaces We Call Home explores the concept of home in all its definitions and asks us to consider the variety of elements that let us know when we have found home. From Lillian Gilbreth’s analysis of what makes a home efficient to David Boder’s interviews with people displaced from their homes, the exhibit brings together artifacts from the collections of the Archives of the History of American Psychology and the Institute for Human Science and CultureBeyond the Picket Fence was researched and curated by volunteer intern, Kellyn Toombs.
