The ME ME ME Selfie Museum

Are selfies art?  Is taking endless pics of yourself less about self-obsession and more about artistic expression?  Is everytime you take a quick pic of your face another opportunity to exist side by side with the Mona Lisa?   These are just a few a themes that the Museum of Selfies’ creators, Tommy Honton and Tair Mamedov, hope to answer in their new museum...THE MUSEUM OF SELFIES...oh GOD, this is really really.....GOD help us ALL!!!!

“We are fully expecting people to go ‘What the hell is this?’ or ‘Oh god, another one of these Instagram palaces?’ but it’s actually a museum. You can create cool photos there—that’s a huge part of it—but another part of it is, you can explore what it took to get to this point, and why people even take these things.” continue Honton and Mamedov.

What the heck is a museum of selfies?  Well, it's ten fully interactive exhibits where visitors will have the opportunity to snap photos of themselves and learn about selfie culture.

Selfie culture?  HA.  I wonder if they are going to have an exclusive Paris Hilton exhibit.....cause she is the one who claims to have INVENTED the Selfie with this pic (even though I, for example, have been doing selfies since I got my first digital camera in 1997).

“We want the snarkiness. We welcome skeptics. We welcome people going, ‘Really?’ because we want to try to change their minds. Even if they walk away hating selfie culture, at least they can acknowledge that it does have a place in our society—good, bad, or otherwise.“

211 N. Brand Boulevard in Glendale. 

Once it opens in (Winter 2018), the hours will be Wednesday to Friday, noon to 8 p.m., and weekends, noon to 10 p.m. 

Tickets will be $25

...and because this is LA, I am sure there will be lines around the block and the place will be sold out.  
Oh...and I bet they charge for parking too...just feels like the kind of place that would.

We love a good selfie...and if there is going to be a museum of this kind...Hollywood seems to be the best place for it.  So we ❤️ you!!!
