Located on the 9th floor of the Schermerhorn Extension at Columbia University, this case provides a space for rotating exhibitions, sponsored by the Columbia Center for Archaeology. A new exhibit will be mounted in March 2019.

The Center for Archaeology inaugurated the 9th floor case in 2018 with an exhibit by artist Lucy Mitchell, called Still Life with Questions. The exhibit, and associated text and discussion panel were curated by Zoe Crossland, Briana Parker, and Alaina Wibberly. Still Life with Questions will be in place until the end of 2018. The next exhibit will be announced at the start of 2019.
