That shoe box full of old movie stubs? Your dried out prom corsage? These aren't just artifacts of your past relationships; they're also potential pieces of art.
At least that's the concept behind ongoing experimental project Museum of Broken Relationships, and now what started as a traveling exhibition back in 2006 has its second permanent location here in Los Angeles. Founders Olinka Vištica and Dražen Grubišić began the endeavor as a means to both mourn and celebrate defunct relationships and their new Hollywood residence (their first space is in Zagreb, Croatia) artfully showcases items like mix tapes, undergarments, even an X Files pin with the seriousness and attention of a high-end gallery or boutique. Each item has been accumulated via donation and is signified with a card with a brief description and place of origin.
The collection displayed at the Los Angeles location, which is currently open seven days a week (hours differ daily, check here for details), can be viewed upon purchase of an $18 admission ($15 for students and seniors). The museum also validates parking at the Hollywood and Highland lot.
