Professor Deacon's Cultural Cabinet (Exhibit)
Time: 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM
Location: Museum of Anthropology, Wake Forest University

What does a culture look like? Are the ideals, behaviors, symbols, and celebrations that comprise a culture truly unique, or do they share things in common with other cultures? A professor posed these questions to a group of WFU students, who then sought out the answers right here on campus. Objects representing the “Wake Forest University Culture” are on display alongside ethnographic objects from the Museum’s collection, allowing visitors to see for themselves how cultural traits might be both unique to a certain community and common to societies the world over. Admission is free.

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. Admission is free.
