    The Jenks Society for Lost Museums has given Brown’s nineteenth-century Museum of Natural History and Anthropology, a second life. Working with artist Mark Dion, the Society has re-collected scattered relics and remnants, transformed words into spaces, and fragments of curatorial description into spectral art. A three-part installation re-imagines the office of the museum’s founder, showcases the remaining fragments of the collection, and conjures the ghosts of artifacts once found in the museum back into existence – as reimagined by over 80 artists. The installation is on display through May 2015 in Rhode Island Hall, 60 George St. Summer hours are Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, visit http://jenksmuseum.org/.
