Any new members out there? Please join us from 6 - 9 PM this
Thursday evening, October 27th, as the museum hosts a free New
Member Night event. It is a wonderful opportunity to get a look at
collections and projects that are happening behind-the-scenes.
The Department of Anthropology will feature treasures from the
collection which are normally kept in our storage rooms. Did you
know that only 1.5% of the DMNS Anthropology collection is
currently on display? Well here's your chance to get a first hand
look at some of those rarely seen items. Pieces will include
embroidered silk shoes from China, a Jivaro feather headdress from
Ecuador, a Yoruba headdress from Nigeria, and several other objects
from around the world.
