Native Ethnographic Exhibit <em>Connecting Objects to their People: From the Arctic to Arizona</em> Comes to Ohio
On May 9 we told you about the new exhibit coming to the University of Akron's Center for the History of Psychology entitled Connecting Objects to their People: From the Arctic to Arizona.
The university's distinguished senior lecturer and research associate Lynn R. Metzger, Ph.D. of the Department of Anthropology and Classical Studies sent us these photographs of some of what you can see at the exhibit.
If you live near the Akron area, or will be traveling in the area, we highly recommend you check out the exhibit. The free exhibition displays cultural objects from the 1800 and 1900s. There will be four different regions represented: the Arctic/subarctic, the Northwest Coast, the Great Basin and the Southwest. All of the pieces come from the private collection of Jim and Vanita Oelschlager. The Oelschlagers fascination with American Indian culture led them to building their private collection with everything from tools, blankets and baskets to famed photographer Edward Curtis books and prints and western bronze, and even a totem pole.
