Artifiact from Material Culture Exhibit

Temporary Exhibit.
February 17, 2018 – September 9, 2018.

​​​​A.G. Smith’s Material Culture Project is based on the concept that human need and available material combine to create forms that are inherently iconic. Over the last several years, he has constructed a series of models closely replicating shelters, transport, and artifacts of Northern Europe, Asia, and North America. Believing that knowledge is cumulative, much of the culture of a people can be​ known through their material artifacts.   

This exhibition includes A.G. Smith’s models, as well as selected pieces from the Museum’s collection.
