Cultures, Contexts, & Collectors

January 28 – May 30, 2020

Shadow PuppetEvery object has a story. Their stories become entwined with people as they are bought, sold, forgotten, found, or passed along. The objects in this exhibit all have one thing in common: they were recently donated to the Museum of Anthropology. Before this, the objects came from a diversity of cultural traditions and time periods. Their stories continue to develop as MOA researches, conserves, and exhibits them. Wake Forest students in an Introduction to Museum Studies anthropology course curated the exhibit.

You can now explore this exhibition online via our Virtual Exhibits page.
