Millions of people anonymously shared their secrets with one man

SAN DIEGO - Would you share your secrets with a stranger? The San Diego Museum of Man’s newest exhibit, PostSecret, explores the power secrets have to connect us and allow us to feel alone, together.

PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard.

For over a decade, people from all across the world have been creating and sending postcards with their untold secrets to Frank Warren, the founder of PostSecret.

Warren has received over a million postcards and each postcard submission is a unique, handmade piece of art made by a person who needed to share their secret into the world.

 

"This exhibit explores the idea that everyone has a secret – whether it’s funny or dark or awful or romantic," according to San Diego Museum of Man Director of Exhibits Erika Katayama.

Katayama explained how San Diegans can get involved with the exhibit with the PostSecret Street Team. Watch the video above for more details.

The exhibit will open at the San Diego Museum of Man in Balboa Park on April 14.
