As part of the Peabody’s continued sesquicentennial celebration, we are very excited to announce PEABODY2. Located at 1 Broadway in the heart of New Haven, the gallery will feature a parade of stunning objects from the Museum’s division of anthropology—many of which have never before been exhibited. Highlighting the Museum’s fantastic collections from Southeast Asia and Australia, the exhibition will feature a personal letter from the Philippines inscribed on a bamboo strip, leather shadow puppets from Java, a towering masked costume from New Guinea, didjeridoos from Australia, and a 16-foot dugout canoe from the Mentawai Islands.
A centerpiece of the display will be an impressive collection of aboriginal art from Australia. The collection will include both acrylic pieces and paintings on eucalyptus bark. Together, these pieces will tell the stories of water, gathering, and hunting.
Partnering with The Shops at Yale to bring you this limited engagement exhibition, PEABODY2 will be free and open to the public Monday through Saturday (10:00am-9:00pm) and Sunday (noon-6:00pm)
