Objects of Desire: Hidden Gems from the Peabody Institute Library

Material culture, unlike written text or spoken word, is not based on what we write or say, but represents who we are as individuals and a community though the objects we own.

The Peabody Institute Library, like many archives, has a collection of objects that are rarely seen or explored. This exhibit puts those objects front and center.
