Global Museum Foreshadows Major Exhibit

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- The display will focus heavily on climate change, and use graphics and an interactive storyboard. It’s expected to be completed by the end of the fall 2018 semester.

Appropriately, said assistant collections manager Taylor Kinley, the climate change exhibit includes several pieces from indigenous communities in Central and South America.

“A lot of those communities are dealing with rampant climate change issues, so to be able to bring those in and bring them to the forefront and have a safe place to discuss these issues is very important,” Kinley said.

A side gallery will feature the mummified remains of Nes-Per-N-Nub, a priest from the Temple of Karnak. The remains are one of the many art pieces aggregated by former San Francisco Mayor Adolf Sutro during the late 18th century. They were kept on display at the Sutro Baths and later donated to SF State.
