Fakes & Forgeries

This interactive exhibit will look at the techniques that museum professionals use to authenticate artifacts; provenance research, connoisseurship, UV analysis, and hyperspectral imaging. The exhibit will also explore the complex ethical issues surrounding authentication. Using tools and information hidden throughout the gallery, visitors will be able to conduct their own investigation of an artifact to test their skills.
