Two Cabinets of Curiosity


A few weeks ago, I was having a meeting and we were crossing the street to the Museum of Art to continue our conversation, when we were confronted by two taxidermied bears being wheeled down the street. It turned out that the Museum of Natural History was going to use some of the vacant storefronts downtown to set up window displays to advertise. Which is a fantastic idea. Economic downturn = not as many stores, and also, another reason to visit a museum (which is inexpensive and wonderful entertainment). Here are two of the displays--Curiosity Cabinets filled with marvelous treasures.
