Why do we sometimes know a lot about who made things, and why do we sometimes not?  Why does it sometimes matter to us, and why might it sometimes not?  These are the questions that are raised in the exhibit that will inaugurate the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology’s renovated Kroeber Hall Gallery. The exhibit explores objects from the collection that urge visitors to think critically about how perceptions of makers have varied in different times and different places.
