    Featuring a selection of traditional art from Papua New Guinea, Faces of New Guinea: Selections from the Samuel Spring Collection highlights the range of artistic styles and mediums found in traditional Oceanic art, while focusing on the recurring theme of faces. The show emphasizes the ability to create a variety of individual objects, which utilize the tradition of carving, native to many groups. The objects in this show are from the collection of Professor Emeritus and Guest Curator, Dr. Anita Spring. Her father, Samuel Spring, collected the objects during his time living in Australia.
