Museum Loan Network: Grant Collections

About the Grant Collections

Taken individually, each of these collections, and their attendant surveys, focuses on only a tiny portion of The Field Museum's entire Anthropology collection. Taken together, however, they constitute the fruits of the Museum's renewed efforts to make our Anthropology collection increasingly available and understandable to the public through exhibition.

The brief texts presented communicate the scholarly importance and some facts about these priceless collections. The photographs, all taken by Diane Alexander White, can only sample the range of artifact types and illustrate their aesthetic value and exhibition potential. The Department of Anthropology at The Field Museum takes great pride in collaborating with the Museum Loan Network on their many valuable programs.
