Media Advisory -- Museum Event

Staff at the University Museum at Southern Illinois University Carbondale will open the archive storage unit on Friday to bring out of storage a Native American-created treasure. Members of the media are welcome to be on hand as a 13-foot totem pole is brought into the museum and set up in the Atrium -- the only space in the museum tall enough to display it adequately. The museum archive is on McLafferty Road. Museum personnel will bring the pole into the museum at about 1:30 p.m.
