In addition to their permanant exhibits, most museum have rotating or temporary exhibits.These allow the museum to focus on an area or subject that might not be as broad or as comprehensive to warrent inclusion in a national museum. And sometimes these exhibits arrainged in conjuction with museums or institutions in other cities, or even other countries, allowing us to see cultural icons that would be out of ordinary reach.
For those of us who live here, a good temporary exhibit can give new life to a museum that, however wonderful, can become repetitive and perhaps even dull. For those visiting less frequently, temporary exhibits give you a chance to see something new, something different, something no one back home has seen. Perhaps it even allows a once in a lifetime opportunity to see something that has never been in this country and may never be again.
But how to seperate the wheat from the chaff? With so many museums and so much going on, how to tell what's in town? Further complicating the problem is that one persons once in a lifetime experience is anothers snore. All I can offer is my opinion. Below are temporary exhibits that are currently in town that I've enjoyed. Check them out and let me know if you like them. If you've got one that you like, let me know at email@example.com.
