The Mobile Museum of American Artifacts curator Laurelin Kruse is looking for donations from Gloucester residents. She is most interested in objects of a personal nature that tell a story about the owner. Stop in tonight at the Lanesville Community where the museum will be open and Laurelin will be accepting donations.
Laeurelin writes, I’ll be at the Lanesville Community Center tonight during the Mayoral Debates and Thursday at the Cape Ann Farmer’s Market. Otherwise I can usually be found at the Rocky neck parking lot [on the causeway to Rocky Neck] or check my Instagram (name: theMMoAA ) for my whereabouts.

“The Mobile Museum of American Artifacts (MMoAA) is a touring museum of personal objects and their histories. Housed in a small vintage trailer, MMoAA travels from town to town, conducting an “archeology of the present” that uncovers objects of significant (and insignificant) connection to everyday American life. MMoAA’s presence in a city sparks a sense of local pride and inspires people to look into their communities for what gives them and their hometown a sense of place.
MMoAA is an exploration in the everyday, the local—the lives we live and the places we inhabit—and sees the present tense on its way to becoming a story, a thing regarded, the rough draft of memory.”
