Memory and Mourning: An Exhibit History
Eberle, Scott G.
Death Studies, v29 n6 p535-557 Jul-Aug 2005
Mounted by the Strong Museum in Rochester, New York, in 1993, and traveling nationally thereafter, the exhibit Memory and Mourning provided historical and contemporary perspectives to help museum guests explore their own reactions to loss and grief. In the process the exhibit's development team encountered a range of philosophical, historical, psychological, and therapeutic issues that have surrounded bereavement in America. Visitor comments showed how popular audiences recapitulated and anticipated the professional discourse.
