A reading from the Museum of Advice was held on January 14 at the Woodland Pattern Book Center to a crowd of almost one hundred in attendance.

A dozen of the original 26 experts, from the Milwaukee Fringe Festival, attended the public recital to read aloud their favorite responses to the problems people shared at the August event. Exactly 423 individual questions were collected at the Advice Tent, where curious people were encouraged to pose questions that ranged from the serious, to the vague, to the absurd.

The free advice was retained and archived by the project creator Anja Sieger, who created a digital databases for The Museum of Advice. Physical copies of the questions and answers gathered at the tent will be on display at the Woodland Pattern Book Center from January 10 to 22.

The images from this photo essay captured the afternoon reading and audience talkback, featuring problems and paths to solve them from enlightened advice.
