Home Is.... Exhibit
What does “home” mean to you?
Home is… explores the many diverse definitions of “home” by bringing together a collection of community-loaned objects. Community members were asked to contribute something that represented “home” to them. We received a range of items, from objects to images to stories. Individually, they each represent the interpretation of a single individual; together, they weave a tapestry that reveals the breadth of meaning captured by a single word: “home.”
The design and installation of Home is… was completed by Museums and Archives Studies Certificate Program student, Lacy Nicholas. The Certificate is a unique offering at The University of Akron that prepares students for work in the museum and archive professions by providing hands-on, experiential education.
Please note that the Cummings Center, including the Archives of the History of American Psychology, National Museum of Psychology and Institute galleries, will be closed on Thursday,View more
