This March, the contemporary art exhibition Wampum World: An Art Installation by Renée Ridgway will open at the Albany Institute of History & Art. This multimedia exhibition is an artist’s interpretation of the changing meaning of wampum from culture to culture and time period to time period. It combines video installations with objects that the artist has selected from the museum’s collection of Dutch colonial materials. No physical wampum will be shown in this exhibition.
