"Artifacts" at Chicago Children's Museum

Today saw the installation of "Artifacts" at Chicago Children's Museum in Michael's Museum's Changing Collections Cabinet. Friends and Guest Collectors Jake Bloom and Jan Yourist gathered miniature, diminutive, little, small, and tiny items from around their collection filled home and created a magical, mysterious, evocative exhibit that will be on loan through February 23, 2012. Come visit and experience for yourself!
