Sheldon Museum strips naked to display its architectural bones
One of the galleries isn't quite empty: rocks are placed on the edges of the tiles on the floor. This creates an effect to make visitors notice the texture on the floor, as well as the size and space in the room. The rocks were collected from area outside the museum.
