OMG: THNK 1994 Museum plans to open a Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen exhibit

Finally—the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen exhibit we’ve been waiting for!

It was only last year that Brooklyn comedians, besties and roomies Matt Harkins and Viviana Olen transformed their snug apartment hallway into the Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan 1994 Museum—a hilarious art exhibit, which New York didn’t realize it needed until contributions started rolling in from around the world. It became very serious. 

Now, the duo has big plans—HUGE—to rent a storefront and host larger, more frequent cultural events (with public viewing hours) starting with their chicest subjects yet, the Olsen twins. In order to get this very important institution up-and-running, the curators are collecting funds via Kickstarter.

On their page, there’s an informative video depicting a mockup of the showcase dubbed “Olsen Twins Hiding from the Paparazzi (And Other Art by Laura Collins).”

“They hide behind their hands, shopping bags, a Birkin bag, a turtleneck…a lot of different things,” says Olen. But that’s not all! There’s a Lisa Vanderpump Confessional Stump, where you can sit your rump on an actual stump and purge all your sins into Vanderpump’s portrait.

There will be a “When A Stranger Calls” phone, which will ring at random. You’ll answer, Netflix will ask you to join its original series, Fuller House and you’ll turn it down, duh!

But our favorite feature? The giant Starbucks cup, handbag and Blackberry props, which will make you look so tiny in comparison to their abnormal size. You guys, we need this. NEW YORK needs this. Please donate and get your oversized shades ready by April 2016.
