Hot Pick: Share your story at Carnegie Museum of Art


Write your own story in the new year. In a new interactive exhibition at Carnegie Museum of Art, “The Stories You Tell,” visitors are invited to respond to works by such luminary artists as Romare Bearden, Mary Cassatt and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

Set up like a casual lounge, the Forum Gallery on the museum’s first floor contains couches and a coffee table full of art books to encourage contemplation.

Tables and chairs are there to sit down and write your own story, using one of the artworks on the walls as a point of departure or to spark an idea. Your story can be funny, dramatic, sad, based on fact or fiction, but regardless, once posted on the wall it can be read by all.

Visitors are even encouraged to share their stories online, in the form of six-word stories that can be read on Instagram ( @thecmoa ) or Twitter (@cmoa).
