Join co-curators Cara McCarty, Curatorial Director and Matilda McQuaid, Deputy Director of Curatorial and Head of Textiles for an informal discussion about creating the Tools exhibition right in the galleries! Tools: Extending Our Reach has 175 objects from nine other Smithsonian collections, spanning diverse cultures, places, and time periods. The 1.85 million years of tool use and design represented in the exhibition provide an opportunity to consider tools as amazing examples of design, and reveal the fundamental role they play in shaping our lives.
