Current and Upcoming Exhibits

The Museum of Anthropology offers a permanent collection and exhibits as a faculty resource.

The Museum of Anthropology is a resource for faculty from all disciplines and across campus. In addition to having a permanent collection of over 100,000 artifacts that are available for faculty teaching and research, this year we are hosting the following exhibits that you might want to see and integrate into your courses:

Spirited: Stories of Wellbeing features artwork created by individuals with Alzheimer’s and their care partners alongside masks from the collection that inspired them. Open now through Sept. 22, 2017.

Gregg Deal, Pyramid Lake Paiute, will exhibit new work as the featured artist for the 14th annual Indigenous Film and Arts Festival. Open Oct. 6-19, 2017.
IFAF film screening, Oct. 5, 6-9 p.m. in Davis Auditorium
Exhibit reception, Oct. 6, 5-7 p.m. in Sturm Hall, room 102
Gregg Deal (artist lecture), Oct. 6, 10-11:50 p.m., location TBD

Connecting the Pieces: Dialogues on the Amache Archaeology Collection will be curated by students in Dr. Bonnie Clark’s American Material Culture course, in partnership with community members, including former internees. This will be the third iteration of this popular exhibit. A previous version is currently available for travel and can be viewed online at this website. Winter quarter (dates TBD)

This spring we will Activate the Collections with a new exhibit featuring objects from the permanent collection. This will be the first exhibit in an ongoing series that highlights the ways museum collections can be used in object-based teaching and learning. Spring quarter (dates TBD)
