Are Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen Getting Their Own Museum? It's A Pretty Unexpected Idea — PHOTOS
If you're a diehard Olsen twins fan (right here!), then prepare to lose all your chill over the fact that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen might be getting their own museum, according to Racked. Now how much better would school field trips have been if that existed back in the day?
OK, so, there is a bit of a catch. If you're thinking this museum is going to be memorabilia from their films, personal items, and shed more light on the private lives of the twins, then you might be a little disappointed. It's actually designed to highlight just how unattainable and private they are. A Kickstarter is up for funding by two Brooklyn-based comedians, Matt Harkins and Viviana Olen, who want to create a museum exhibit dedicated to MKA. It would include paintings of them by artist Laura Collins, part of an original series by the same artist called "The Olsen Twins Hiding From The Paparazzi." And the paintings look exactly like the name sounds.
The exhibit is meant to evoke just how private and out of reach the twins are. "The Olsen Twins have been a national brand since they were babies. We envied them, revered them, we gazed upon them. As adults they are now badass business women who facilitate their lives to be as inaccessible as possible," the Kickstarter explains.
Though it might sound a little strange, the campaign is already more than a quarter to the goal, and if they do reach it, the exhibit will be open in April for two weeks (though the more money raised, the longer it will stay open).
Inaccessible is certainly an understatement.
There's no word whether or not this is Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen-approved, but my guess is that they probably won't be showing their support anytime soon. However, if you're ready for an Olsen twins museum, head on over to Kickstarter and donate.
