A "Cabinet of Curiosities" in Gainesville

Curated by Gainesville Resident Bill Hutchinson, the "Theater of Memory" collection is inspired by the "Cabinets of Curiosities" once exhibited in the middle ages.
The exhibition features a diverse range of objects including medieval sheet music, fossils, and even a first edition of a Mark Twain book.
Hutchinson-- who owns all the artifacts-- says the point of the gallery is for people leave with a little more knowledge of the world.
"This is a wonderful thing for bright kids and their parents to come and do together… because is is set up that there is something for nerds of every stripe. Anybody who has a little poetry in their soul, anybody who is looking for a little inspiration will find something here," said Hutchinson.
