The Museum’s exhibit, Casual Conversations, created by photographers Alina and Jeff Bliumis, invites visitors to pose with signs signifying their identities.
I haven’t done it yet because I’m not sure what one word best describes me. There are the givens: male, white, Jewish (not listed in order of importance). Others I could consider include brother, uncle, Springsteen fan, dude. But they are all so limiting.
So, I’m holding off until I come up with the perfect word to describe myself, or at least one that I think will do the trick.
I have until August 19. That’s when the exhibition closes. I hope you’ll have the opportunity to come by and share your identity. You can check out how others have identified themselves on our Flickr site.
