Matt and Viviana recently moved into a two bedroom apartment together. They're really great friends.
The apartment has a really long hallway instead of a living room but it's a great location and was also the first and only place they looked at.
A couple weeks after moving in they watched that documentary about Tonya Harding on Netflix (it's really good you should watch it).
They realized their hallway would be the perfect place to house a museum dedicated to the 1994 American incident and the response. They were honestly pretty shocked there wasn't one already.
Part of the museum team's research has been the realization that everyone is either a Tonya or a Nancy (if you're thinking about it, you're a Tonya. This of course is made more confusing by the fact that if you immediately thought you were a Nancy, you are most definitely a Tonya. The only real way to be a Nancy is to have very long lines in your body. If you thought you were an Oksana Baiul, well, aren't you just perfect, WE SEE RIGHT THROUGH YOU).
They want to blow up pictures really big and hang them up in the hall. Their favorite pictures are ones that have Nancy and Tonya together. Tonya is always looking at Nancy out of the corner of her eye.
Did you know Nancy wore the same dress she was attacked in during Olympics practice?
Their funding goal is $75 which will be used in the creation of exhibitions, including but not limited to the enlargement of historical documents (Tonya and Nancy pix). If there is enough interest Matt and Viviana can begin acquiring artifacts, facilitate more public access, and curate grander exhibits. This includes people's crafting projects, wax figures, historical reenactments and other Tonya and Nancy related creations which can be deemed part of the cultural response to this event and therefore added to the museum's collection.
Matt works at a Museum and Viviana is a really positive person so this feels like a pretty natural transition.
If they raise a ton of money Matt and Viviana will quit their jobs for a year and dedicate themselves to the museum including more research and the possibility of a touring exhibition where they'll go to wherever Tonya lives and buy her a really nice dinner.
Risks and challenges
If we don't make the hallway into the Tonya Harding Nancy Kerrigan 1994 Museum we feel like it will be wasted space.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
