According to the museum’s official website, the exhibit was created with the help of Justin and his family. “The museum was given access to hundreds of items — awards, clothing, pictures, credentials, personal letters and even running shoes… In addition, a number of things have come forward from Stratford residents that have also been offered to the Museum — team pictures, hockey jackets, drum sets,” and more.
For a musician that is only 23-year-old, this exhibit is quite the honor. So, why document his journey now? The Stratford Beacon Herald reports, “the museum’s board of directors had previously considered putting together a Bieber exhibit in the past. But once a visiting politician from Ottawa raised the idea last summer, it picked up steam.”
“We started the conversation and they went back and forth with (his management) in Atlanta and Justin, and we got approval and then we started to go through the inventory of items they had,” says Kastner.
What does Justin, himself, think of the exhibit? Kastner says he very appreciative.
