The XOXO STORY

In 2014, Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh created the traveling exhibition XOXO: An Exhibit About Love & Forgiveness. Our goal was to create a space for people to explore their feelings through activities that encourage meaningful conversations about love and forgiveness.

Since then, the traveling exhibition has traveled to 12 locations across North America
and continues to spread the exploration of love and forgiveness.
The Museum has tracked visitor responses on social media along this journey.

Believing there is an ongoing need for people to explore and talk about love and forgiveness,
we created pop-up versions of the exhibition’s activities that can be
brought out of the Museum to venues and events in the community.

In 2019, the Children’s Museum will create the XOXO: A Project about Love & Forgiveness kit that can travel to communities that have experienced trauma to help those who need it most.
