SHARE YOUR STORY! The Anthropology Museum at Cal State San Bernardino is preparing an exhibition that will highlight everyday stories of childhood, and YOU are invited to contribute.

The exhibition will feature objects that community members have saved from their youth – personal mementos that have sentimental value and help to tell stories of whimsy, change, tragedy, triumph, and personal growth. Your object and story will be woven together with others’ to collectively consider what memory is, the process of remembering, and why “things” hold a special place in our hearts.

Participant Criteria: Participants must be connected to San Bernardino County or the broader Inland Empire -- as past or present students, employees, residents, etc.

Requirements of Participation:

  • An interview about one object saved from childhood that has sentimental value to you
  • Your interview can take place at the university, over the phone, or via email
  • We also ask that you lend your object to us for display in the Museum, along with your story
  • Your treasure will be kept secure, handled to Museum standards, and insured while in our care (approximately March 2016-April 2017)
  • You will have the chance to preview your story before it is displayed, and you will be invited to attend the exhibition opening

Sample Interview Questions

  • In selecting an object for your interview, we ask that you review these questions to ensure that your story matches the needs of the present project:
  • What is the object that you have selected to share with us?
  • Can you describe the object you’ve chosen? (what it is, its provenience, when and how you acquired it, and what sort of role or roles it had in your childhood)
  • Does this object remind you of anyone? Please describe the person, your relationship to the person, and why he or she is important to you.
  • Can you share a few child memories you have about this item? 
  • Does it remind you of any particular moments in your childhood? (what happened and who was there)
  • Are there any identifying marks on the object that came through use or wear that you can tell us about?
  • Describe how seeing this object – or, possibly, holding or using it – makes you feel.
  • Describe how the meaning of this object has changed for you over time (if it has). 
  • Why do you think you’ve held onto it for so long?
  • Does this object remind you of any personal qualities or personality traits that you had when you were younger, or how these qualities and traits developed over time?
  • If not already addressed, what does this object mean to you and why did you select to talk about it?

Timeline: Interviews will be conducted in February and March 2016. Please contact us NOW to make your contribution!

“Art has always been a powerful outlet in my life;”

Among the features that promise to attract outsiders to San Bernardino County, as well as keep insiders intrigued, is its growing arts community. For instance, the City of Ontario, which since 2006 has boasted of its airport becoming international, and shown other new signs of becoming a noteworthy destination, is strongly committed to supporting arts projects, practitioners, and the overall artistic milieu.
