Museum London reaches out to Londoners to help them celebrate their 80th anniversary.

The new exhibition brings together 80 Londoners from different backgrounds and 80 objects from the museum’s collection.

On the topic, curator Andrew Kear said they asked each of them to write an 80-word response to an object or artifact in their collection.

“We wanted to choose people first and then choose objects based on that person,” Kear said.

Kear said that based on their knowledge and experience, people can write and maybe even bring up some information that “even museum curators may not even know”.

Kear says some of the names will be known, others may not – and that’s by design. He said they range from people like Mayor Ed Holder to people who are more “grassroots” and who may not do the front page of the paper every day but are committed to London.

Kear says most museums would use an anniversary as an opportunity to showcase their collections, but Museum London wanted to focus on the Londoners first, and then the objects.

“We wanted to start with the people, even though we have an incredible collection of local artifacts and art, the Museum London wouldn’t exist without the city and the people who supported us.”

Museum London also worked with Anderson Craft Ales to create a series of 12 cans of art and artifacts from the collection.
