Scope and Contents

The catalogue descibes the site-specific, permanent collection of installation pieces at this museum that the Sackners visited during a trip to the Chateau country of France. The collection takes its inspiration from the 16th century cabinets of curiosities in which royalty and the learned men of the time would assemble collections of artifacts and natural objects. Ian Hamilton Finlay's installation was a sculptural work dealing with the battle of Midway. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
