Subject: Media Enquiry: Unique Artifacts Kept In The Archive?
My name is Abby Rhinehart, and I'm working with the journalist Harriet Baskas on an upcoming book, tentatively called Hidden Museum Treasures. In the book, we'll profile museum artifacts that are not often put on display.
We're looking for objects generally kept in the vault for reasons other than just a lack of space -- perhaps they are made from a fragile or dangerous material, are controversial, or are just plain bizarre. Attached to this email is a letter that explains the project in a bit more detail.
Would any museum in Illinois have artifacts that would be good candidates to profile in this book? And/or, could you pass the attached call for objects along to a museums listserv?
Please let me know as soon as possible, as I am working on deadline.
Thank you so much.
