I’ve mentioned before that I am drawn to heartbreak…in art. So, when I heard this story I was immediately drawn to wanting to learn more about the Museum of Broken Relationships  in Zagreb, Croatia. People contribute to its collection by donating mementos and anything else they want to from their broken relationships. The premise behind the entire concept of the museum is that in life, society recognizes marriages, graduations and other significant moments through rituals or ceremonies, but none are devoted to the end of love relationships. In allowing people to donate personal belongings, the museum feels it gives the broken-hearted and scorned the opportunity to  go through the ritual of letting go. I’d love to visit it. What do you think? Would you ever consider donating something?
