A museum that is all about heartbreaks

Post by CielOnTap » Wed Jan 04, 2017 11:10 pm

Heartbreak is a common theme in music of any genre. When relationships fail, there can be hurt that needs a venue or expression. Talking with friends is one way to deal with the aftermath as well.

Two Croatian artists developed an exhibit about heartbreak in 2010 and it's become a museum in Los Angeles, California USA. People readily donate items that represent something meaningful to them about a past relationship and their sense of heartbreak.
Pieces are displayed across six exhibition rooms in the ground-floor location that lures tourists who stroll Hollywood Blvd. Visitors pay $18 (U.S.) admission and are encouraged to pop into a private “confessional,” where they can write about their own breakups.

Olinka Vistica and Drazen Grubisic, the Croatian artists who conceived the original exhibition on a whim, are shocked by its staying power.

Hyde isn’t. “It’s so resonant,” she said. “The audience is so large for it.”
