In The Marvelous Museum, world-renowned aritst Mark Dion rexamines the concept of the museum by focusing on 'orphans'--items in a permanent collection that don't fit into traditional catagories. Dion selects treasures from the archives and backrooms of the Oakland Museum of California from which to create his fascinating works of art---installations and assemblages of objects. This project will form the basis of the installation opening the OMCA's new galleries in fall 2010.
