BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — When The 716 Selfie Museum opens its doors this upcoming weekend, curator and full-time single dad Mark Parker will finally see a lifelong dream of his come to fruition. He’s created a space that allows visitors of any age to both create lasting memories and give back.

Parker says, “This is an opportunity to come here and have a different type of fun something that buffalo has never had.”

The museum’s concept was inspired by Parker’s most influential teacher Rhoda Kittelson- who encouraged him to go for his dreams. He says it was because she influenced his life that he created the Rhoda Kittelson Academic Achievement Program in her honor- an incentive designed to encourage young students to excel.
