  SAAM + BYT Present: Murder House Party A Renwick Gallery Murder is Her Hobby Opening! A murdery after hours featuring exclusive access to the BRAND NEW exhibition Murder is Her Hobby: Frances Glessner Lee and The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death! Frances Glessner Lee crafted her exquisitely detailed miniature crime scenes to train homicide investigators to “convict the guilty, clear the innocent, and find the truth in a nutshell.” These dollhouse-sized diorama composites of true crime scenes were the equivalent of virtual reality in their time, and helped to revolutionize the emerging field of forensic science. Constructed in the 1940s and 50s, they are still used to train homicide investigators today.
