Re│Collect Exhibition Opening in the Press Enterprise

Dr. Arianna Huhn, director of the CSBS Anthropology Museum, successfully debuted the Re│Collect Exhibition on May 31, 2016. The purpose of the exhibition is to incorporate the memories and mementos of San Bernardino community members into an exhibition that explores the meaning of memory, the process of remembering, and why it is that we save things from the past. About 60 faculty, staff, and community members contributed to the exhibition—sharing their personal mementos and nostalgic items, ranging from dolls and record players to items from the Holocaust era, at the Anthropology Museum at CSUSB.

“Re|Collect weaves these objects and narratives together to highlight the highly personal yet overlapping meanings of ‘things,’ and the self-revelations that can be uncovered through the process of remembering and sharing stories about the past,” said Huhn

To see the Re|Collect Exhibit, visit the Anthropology Museum located in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences building, on the third floor. The museum is open from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., Monday through Friday, during the academic year, with adjusted summer hours. The exhibition will be available for viewing through April 2017.
