SC&A has recently installed a new exhibit entitled Hidden Treaures in Special Collections & Archives.  To borrow from the introductory text, the exhibit “features unusual, unique or otherwise unconventional archival items. The items selected for this exhibit are non-textual and intended to be visually appealing. Some of the selections are unusual items from heavily used collections such as the tomato marionette from the Federal Theatre Project Collection. Other selections are from smaller or lesser known collections such as the Japanese sash from the Leonard H. Clark Collection. Regardless, the exhibit serves to highlight items that one might not expect to traditionally find in an archive.”

The exhibit is located on the 2nd Floor, Wing A of Fenwick Library, and a Web version can be found at:
