  • Community Exhibit

    • In the Spring of 2012, the DU Museum of Anthropology hosted Connecting the Pieces: Dialogues about the Amache Archaeology Collection an exhibit produced collaboratively by DU students and community members.  The exhibit featured items collected during the ongoing archaeological research at Amache, Colorado's Japanese American internment camp. 

      The exhibit has since travelled to the Heller Center for the Arts and Humanities Studio Gallery on the campus of the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs and the Auraria Library.  

      A technical report about the exhibit is available below.
