The University of Minnesota is planning to open a new museum dedicated to the story of Cinderella, the fairy tale princess who ruled a kingdom in the 17th century.
The university has announced the opening of the new museum, called Cinderella in the West, in November 2019.
“The story of a woman with a storybook mind who makes it to adulthood through the power of storytelling is one that we are deeply excited about bringing to life,” said Michael Lutz, the university’s vice president of admissions.
“Our aim is to bring this story of women who have made it to the highest office in the land to life through the story telling power of film, TV, and the Internet.”
Lutz said the new institution will have three floors, with the main floor dedicated to “researchers and scholars exploring the history, theory, and aesthetics of fairy tales.”
Luttis plans to open the museum at the campus of the University at Buffalo, one of the oldest continuously operating universities in the United States.
He said the exhibit will feature a “unique” collection of film and television and music recordings, and will also include a digital collection of historical photos.
Lutti said the museum is scheduled to open at the end of 2019.
The project was conceived in the wake of the tragic events of July 1, 2019, when a gunman opened fire in a school in Las Vegas, killing 58 people.
Lutz told CBC News the museum will be a place for students to share their stories, share memories, and learn about the history of fairy tale storytelling.
“There’s a lot of history in the world, and this is a place to show it,” he said.
“It’s going to be an opportunity for us to take the stories that are out there and tell them through film and music and video.”
A project by the university has also been underway for years, but Luttisi said the funding for the project will be “faster than the average university.”
The new museum will include a collection of films that will include the work of many of the original directors and directors of fairy stories, including Arthur and William Stanley, Oscar Wilde, Walt Disney, and Robert Frost.
The films will also offer an opportunity to learn about what it was like to be a child in the era of Disney, Luttisa said.
The school will also create a “dream-like” world for students, in which the film-makers will be able to share stories and discuss their inspirations and influences.
The new project will also feature a digital exhibit, and an exhibit dedicated to an artist who was inspired by the works of the film directors, Lutz added.
The first-year students will have access to the new exhibit through a video-on-demand platform, while those in their second year will be given the opportunity to explore the project online.
Lutsi said he is “really excited” about the new project.
“What we’re hoping is that by connecting the students to the world and their world, they will be excited to do this, and we’re very, very excited about that.”
Lutsis said the school will have the ability to expand the project as it sees fit, and hopes to expand its library of films, as well.
“I think it will be really important to have a library of movies that are accessible to the students,” he added.
