The Margaret and Trammell Crow Gallery

Scenes from Papua New Guinea: bartering as a part of marriage customs; an initiation rite, and a sing-sing celebration, contrasted with the more modern way of life in Papua New Guinea’s capital city Port Moresby.

Jungle Potters: highlights the beautiful designs and refined pottery-making techniques of the Lowland Quichua people of Amazonian Ecuador, which reflect their special adaptation to their local environment.

South America Explored: delight in the discovery of the peoples, languages, history and cultures of the continent of South America. An eight foot topographical map introduces the terrain of the 12 independent countries, one French protectorate, and the Amazon rainforests. In-depth study of the continent is available using an interactive video that features country-by-country information at the touch of a button.
