Talk: The Tonya Harding & Nancy Kerrigan 1994 Museum

The Tonya Harding Nancy Kerrigan 1994 Museum is located in the hallway of Matt Harkins & Viviana Olen's apartment. The two moved into the Brooklyn apartment together and after watching a documentary called "The Price of Gold", the roommates were inspired to turn the hallway into a real museum with artifacts surrounding Tonya Harding, Nancy Kerrigan, and the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics. They have used a successful Kickstarter to craft the hall into a curated collection of primary artifacts, videos, and art that recounts the careers of the two famous skaters, the scandal that catapulted them into the national spotlight, and how the media sculpted its narrative of the incident for years afterwards.
