Exhibition Dates: April 30-May 4, 2012
Exhibition location: Henry Whittemore Library (Lower Reading Room)
Contact: Professor Erika Schneider at email@example.com
For the first time, students in Art History Professor Erika Schneider’s biannual Museum Studies course will exhibit their final projects to the public. On Tuesday, May 1 from 4-5 p.m. in the Henry Whittemore Library (LM), the class will host an opening reception for their exhibits. The nine students will present their individual museum exhibitions to culminate the semester’s exploration of museum research. Students represent the Art & Music, History, and Consumer Sciences departments. Guests will see a wide variety of exhibit topics such as trench warfare, instant cameras, Harry Potter, and Monopoly. Refreshments will be served.
Museum Studies is an interdisciplinary minor consisting of courses in anthropology, art history, history, and fashion. This interdepartmental minor requires that students take a minimum of five courses outside of their major department. Students are strongly encouraged to complete a museum internship to complement the minor. To complete the minor, four of the five courses must be taken outside the student’s major department.
I Found it in the Archives
In honor of October being National Archives Month this new exhibit “I Found it in the Archives” celebrates that moment when the researcher finds a treasure within the Archives. To show this we asked some past researchers to write about some of the collections they have used, and to highlight how this may have helped their research. They wrote about alumnae; Jenny Howard (Class 1866), Bertha Johnston (Class of 1885), Ruth Graves Wakefield (Class of 1924) and Christa Corrigan McAuliffe (Class of 1970). Also in the exhibit are materials from the early Household Arts program (now Consumer Sciences).
Come view the exhibit and maybe something that others found as treasures will resonate with you, or come visit us in Special Collection on the Main Floor of the library to find your own treasure. This exhibit will be up from October through December 2011.
