Wake Forest University Museum of Anthropology: EXHIBIT: Incredible Journeys: The Life Histories of Museum Objects

( Tue., Apr. 19, 2016 - Sat., Mar. 25, 2017 )

WFU Museum of Anthropology, 1834 Wake Forest Rd., Winston-Salem, NC 27106


Wake Forest first-year students in museum studies curated this exhibit exploring the “object biographies” of intriguing specimens in MOA’s collections. The exhibit traces objects from their original use through the missionaries, traders, soldiers, and doctors that acquired them, the connoisseurs that collected them, and finally how anthropologists (and the Museum) might use them.  The exhibit showcases the range of the MOA’s collections and the diverse trajectories objects can have.


Exhibit hours are Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 AM - 4:30 PM.
