Visible Storage

The Andrew H. Whiteford Curatorial Center, known as the Cube, is the centerpiece of the museum's first floor. This two-story, glass-enclosed facility simultaneously displays, protects, and provides easy access to Native American ceramics, baskets, and other collections. Applying the visible storage concept, the Cube allows visitors to get up-close views of hundreds of objects from cultures of North, Central, and South America.

On the Cube's first level, the north half contains pottery from Mexico south to Peru. The south half contains Native basketry from throughout North America. The mezzanine displays pottery from the American Southwest and Midwest as well as large baskets. A moveable storage system inside the Cube houses North American ethnographic objects.
