Franklin Pember collected natural history and cultural objects throughout his life from New York and around the world.
The museum is pulling artifacts from its collection storage to create Tribal Diversity, an exhibit featuring Native American collections, Alaskan Aleut, Asmat tribe of New Guinea and loan items of the Maasai from Africa. Visitors will not only be able to view these extraordinary pieces but learn about them and the cultures. The information presented has been researched by National Honor Society students from Granville High School and Pember volunteers.
This exhibit of cutural artifacts opens June 17 and is ongoing through the end of the year.
