Last week, I showed symmetrical displays of history at the Museum of the American West in Lander, Wyoming. However, history is not always balanced. A good museum shows our similarities and differences. Here are more items on display at the Museum.
At times, our differences stand out.
Though what we wear differs, from practical and utilitarian…
To ornamental and symbolic, our clothing reflects who we are.
Our everyday tools may be manufactured for specific purposes…
Or made to last from pieces of the earth.
Where we live may be colorful and compartmentalized…
Or simple and serene.
Though we may dress and live differently, we all treasure the place we call home.
Our similarities and differences are on display at this and other museums. Consider them to be places to pull us together, not push us apart.
