‘Will there be a Keith Olbermann-shaped pinata?’ asks one potential opening gala attendee. Another Facebook commenter suggests that since Nancy Kerrigan won a silver medal, being number two on New York magazine’s list of things to do this weekend is entirely appropriate.
The grassroots museum known as THNK1994 is finally here. It’s in the hallway of a Brooklyn apartment and requires an appointment to visit. In the meantime, $20 gets you into the official launch party Saturday at Standard Toykraft.
Among the door prize goodies tomorrow night are five copies of a print by artist Mike Denison (pictured). There will also be temporary tattoos and plenty of nostalgia.
The museum is the brainchild of comedians and roommates Matt Harkins and Viviana Olen, who were inspired by the ESPN 30 For 30 documentary The Price of Gold. And of course, Kickstarter helped make the museum happen.
