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.

Warfare and Violent Conflict (Exhibit)
Time: 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM
Location: Museum of Anthropology, Wake Forest University

Warfare intersects with other cultural behaviors, creating diverse cultural contexts for violence. Though modern war is technologically sophisticated, the artifacts of war can help identify patterns in the scope of violent conflict. This mini-exhibit features traditional weapons that relate to broader aspects of global cultures, such as identity, economic development, religion, and technology. Admission is free.

Visions of Home: A Celebration of Gullah Art & Culture (Exhibit)
Time: 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM

Home has personal significance and meaning. Home may be a place, landscape, object, journey, or relationship. Through contemporary art and ethnographic artifacts, home is envisioned as a patchwork of places, histories, and identities by the Gullah people of the southeastern Atlantic coast. This exhibit features original works on this theme by Sea Islands artists from the Red Piano Too Gallery, as well as works by Wake Forest University Professor Katharine Ziff, and objects from the Museum of Anthropology's collection.
