Postponed: Cultures, Contexts, & Collectors

Please note: The Museum of Anthropology and Wake Forest University continue to monitor the rapidly changing situation surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak.  The safety and wellbeing of our patrons and staff are our highest priority, and as such, the Museum has temporarily closed to the public.

Every 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 the Introduction to Museum Studies anthropology course curated the exhibit, with additional audio interpretation created by students in the Art of Sound journalism course.  Admission is free.
