(Victor Valley)– “Lost and Found,” which places the focus on the value of study-abroad programs, is the current exhibit at the Anthropology Museum at Cal State San Bernardino.

Juried, curated, developed, designed, fabricated, and installed by CSUSB students, “Lost and Found” is an exhibition to promote the value of study abroad and study away experiences for undergraduate students, featuring photos by students, faculty, staff and alumni that are embedded into large “scrapbook” pages.

“Sometimes we get LOST in immersive experiences, forgetting the worries and stresses of everyday life, or even losing ourselves as we learn to see the world through the eyes of others,” the web page for the exhibit says. “Sometimes we FIND ourselves in new places, and discover things we may never have seen or known about the world, and about ourselves.”

The exhibit opened with a reception on Sept. 23 attended by CSUSB President Tomás D. Morales and university administrators and college deans, and will remain on display through June.

About the Anthropology Museum
The CSUSB Anthropology Museum was founded in 2000. Located within the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences building at Cal State San Bernardino, the breathtaking gallery space provides expansive views of the surrounding San Bernardino and San Gabriel mountains.

The mission of the Anthropology Museum is to serve as a teaching laboratory for Museum Studies Certificate students, who gain hands-on experience in collections management, exhibition planning, curation and museum administration. The museum additionally provides space for the presentation of exhibitions that illustrate and interrogate the cultural contexts and meanings of community histories, events, identities and behaviors — locally, across the world and over time — and other anthropological perspectives on topics of interest.

The museum is open 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Friday. Guided tours and weekend visits can be arranged with advanced notice by contacting the museum director at (909) 537-5505. Admission is free; parking at CSUSB is $6.
