Museum Artifacts Featured in Curators' Favorites
Museum Artifacts Featured in Curators' Favorites at the WHS. "...In January 2005 museum staff began to post online articles about some of the intriguing objects in the Wisconsin Historical Society's massive artifact collection in Madison. Every week, a different object was given the Museum Object of the Week treatment: a short essay to describe the artifact, chronicle the circumstances of its manufacture and use, and interpret its historical significance; a photograph of the object itself; and supplementary images to help place it within its historical contexts. After more than 200 such articles, the Society has converted Museum Object of the Week into Curators' Favorites."
