Students in Chico State's Museum Studies program are working hard to install the new exhibit at the university's Valene Smith Museum of Anthropology.
It will feature a collection of fine Asian ceramics ... some pieces date back to 500 a.d.
The students have researched and designed the exhibit themselves ... And installing the exhibit serves as their Final Exam.
"They learn project management, they learn how to work with real deadlines, this is a real exhibit, it's not paper cups and construction paper, it's the real thing, so they learn how to put a museum exhibit together from initial concept to the final product," said Dr. Georgia Fox, Professor of Anthropology.
The exhibit is called "Fired Earth: Beauty and Tradition in Asian Ceramics."
It includes pieces from China, Japan and Korea and will open to the public January 27th, after the start of the Spring Semester.
The Valene Smith Museum of Anthropology is located in the Meriam Library Complex on campus, next to the Janet Turner Print Museum.
