A new museum opens its single door this weekend in Brooklyn, New York, as two comedians-turned-figure skating fans unveil their crowdsourced project to the world.
The pair became fascinated by the now decades-old feud between the former figure skaters after watching ESPN's “30 for 30” documentary “The Price of Gold,” which detailed the attack on Kerrigan before the 1994 Olympics.
The original plan was to blow up a series of pictures of big moments in the athletes’ careers, so Olen and Harkins launched a Kickstarter campaign but were overwhelmed with the response online, finding far more fellow fans than they expected.
With donated fan art projects including a diorama and cross stitches, as well as more than $2,000 in donations, the pair collected enough artifacts to fill their wall space.
Because it is still the apartment where they live, Olen and Harkins will be scheduling the viewings directly with interested parties.
