The exhibit is one of three in the museum, which has reopened for preview hours through May 11

"We all remember show and tell from kindergarten: bring in something interesting from home and tell the other kids about it. It’s a good way to help children learn how to share information while strengthening their connections with classmates.

A new museum exhibit is taking that to the next level. The collegiate level, in fact. “Show & Tell” is one of three temporary exhibits on display at San Francisco State University’s Global Museum through May 11. Produced by student storytellers from Lecturer Fran Osborne’s class “Museum Studies 730: Exhibit Development,” “Show & Tell” features items from the students’ lives in displays that reveal the deeply personal stories behind them. Visitors will see everything from a childhood soccer medal to an elaborate, “Lord of the Rings”-worthy wizard costume created for Renaissance fairs."
