DESCRIPTION

Most museum-goers only ever get to see a fraction of a museum’s collection. Due to the cost, time, and space required to frame and house artwork, a large portion of museums’ pieces go unframed and are stored in flat files, cabinets where artwork is laid flat in drawers. These pieces are unfortunately hidden away from the rest of the world, only seen by a select few of the museum staff. In From the Flat Files, the museum will reveal some of its never-before-seen treasures.
