Six Picks - Director's Favorites from the Vaults

Only a very small fraction of the Museum's holdings can be displayed at any one time; normally that fraction is less than 3%. The remainder is in storage, and I've intentionally focused on that group of unseen (or rarely seen) objects in creating this list of favorites. It's entirely idiosyncratic, comprising pieces that speak to me for one or another reason.
