The Batak: Tradition and Transition in Northern Sumatra
This exhibit explores the Batak people of Sumatra, Indonesia and features a colorful array of textiles, masks, and religious objects from the Logan Museum of Anthropology’s permanent collection. The exhibit was guest curated by George Ulrich, Curator Emeritus of African and Oceanic Ethnology at the Milwaukee Public Museum. This will be the Logan Museum’s last temporary exhibit in the Shaw Gallery for two years. The gallery will be closed while the Logan implements a collections rehousing project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, to be completed in 2008.
