> DESCRIPTION

Founded in 2002 by María Alós and Nicolás Dumit Estévez in New York City, The Passerby Museum is an itinerant institution dedicated to presenting temporary exhibitions in different cities. The museum draws its collection from donations from people who visit, work or live where it is in operation at any given time.

The Passerby Museum has been presented in Madrid, Spain, Puebla, México, Kitchener, Canada, New York, including Manhattan and the Bronx, and twice in México City, Mexico and Havana, Cuba. At each location, visitors were asked to donate any random object from their life to The Passerby Museum's "collection." The only requirement is that the object fit into a sandwich bag.

Its collection - which currently holds about 3,000 objects - will be exhibited in its entirety at the Claremont Museum of Art along with items collected in Claremont during the two weeks before the opening of the exhibition.
