THIS IS A PAST EVENT.
Museums are filled with works of art and ancient artifacts that represent global cultural heritage. Not every object, however, belongs in a museum. This exhibit traces the origins of three of the Lam Museum’s collections to show how heritage is threatened by unethical collecting. The story takes visitors on a journey from archaeological sites to the elite world of art collectors, and from the Pacific Islands to the Wake Forest University campus. Visitors will also find out what is happening to reconnect these objects to stakeholders around the world. Admission is free.
