Through stories, pictures, songs, performances, love letters and a rich family history, Objects of Affection shows us what life was like for diverse families on the Central Coast.
The “Objects of Affection” exhibit draws upon the personal papers of families featured in the Re/Collecting Project (RECO), an online archive and ethnic studies memory project featuring families of California’s Central Coast. The project is directed by Dr. Grace Yeh, associate professor of ethnic studies at Cal Poly.
“These stories can’t be found in archives. They are personal stories and family photos,” Grace said.
