This special two-week exhibit shows off items from the collection of Ann Dunham, President Obama's mother. It includes Javanese batiks (fabrics patterned by using a wax-resist process), which were readily seen on city and village streets in the 1960s when Dunham and young Barack Obama lived in Jakarta.
