Someone left a rolled note here.
I always enjoy giving the museum a good look-over after an event. I find the words and lines and poems that people have left behind. The museum encourages wordplay and almost everything in the space can be written on. Here are some of the treasures I found after our last event Nov. 16.
The rolled-up note was a reference to a poem on the wall next to this box of dolls. It is “Barbie Doll” by Marge Piercy.
