First Expanded Focus Gallery Website Announced

The BGC is pleased to announce the expansion of our Focus Gallery website for the exhibition Objects of Exchange: Social and Material Transformation on the Late Nineteenth-Century Northwest Coast, that opened in January 2011. Conceived by BGC Professor Aaron Glass, who was the exhibition curator, the new Objects of Exchange site brings to public attention the on-going research Professor Glass has conducted with his graduate students on aspects of the Northwest Coast collections at the American Museum of Natural History that we were unable to include in the exhibition. These additions further enhance the already extensive multimedia documentation of the exhibition on the website. This is a unique source of knowledge and information about Objects of Exchange

We would like to congratulate Professor Glass, and acknowledge the excellent work he has done with our graduate students. We would also like to thank Vanessa Rossi, Digital Content Developer, for her important contribution to making the new content available on the website.

In addition to this newly expanded gallery site, we are also using our website to keep you better informed about our academic and cultural activities by posting videos of lectures by prominent scholars and guests at the BGC.  We encourage you to check the site for information about all of the BGC programs, weekly updates on news and events, and to go to our Facebook and Twitter feeds.

Please visit the expanded Focus Gallery website.
