The Field Museum opened the doors to five Filipino-American artists for a behind the scenes look at their 100-year-old collection of objects from the Philippines. The Field Museum has more than 10,000 archeological and ethnographic objects from the country. Five Chicago artists and five Philippine artists were selected to create individual art pieces inspired by the artifacts as part of the project called Art and Anthropology: Portrait of the Object as Filipino. The art pieces will be on display in October 2015.
