About this Article
The Field Museum is dedicated to teaching guests about the world, putting every object it displays in context through a variety of informational signs. But "Fashion and the Field Museum Collection: Maria Pinto" is not your typical museum exhibit. This collection is only meant to be looked at within the context of visual beauty. “We’re trying to encourage people to look at these objects as objects of beauty, not in a cultural context,” said Janet Hong, project manager for exhibitions.
