Annette Cravens Collection

Cravens World is an innovative, alternative design for “open storage”—a space or room in a museum providing visible accessibility to an entire collection. Learning opportunities are limitless. Aided by diverse educational tools for engagement, audiences visually encounter more than 1,100 objects spanning 6,000 years of world arts that evoke the nuances of human expression and creativity. The Cravens collection is an innovative educational instrument for object-based teaching for a range of disciplines at the University and K-12 curriculum, as well as to the diverse interests of individual visitors to the Gallery.
