A 21st century activist poster. A 16th century book on mourning. A 20th century poem jotted on a dinner menu. What do these vastly different artifacts have in common? They tell a story of human connection, simultaneously revealing how people related to one another and to the world around them. Through these artifacts, we explore various kinds of human interactions: people’s connection to faith, their familial bonds, and working relationships. They remain here, present and relevant, through the objects on display. We all become a part of the same history, and in this shared fate we invite you to experience a sense of belonging.
In the spirit of collaboration and creativity, this exhibit features objects of spiritual, cultural, and artistic resonance. Drawn from our Archives and Special Collections and the Marymount Institute for Faith, Culture and the Arts, items in this exhibition include books, manuscripts, poetry, correspondence, drawings, prints, and sculpture from authors and artists such as Dante Alighieri and Sandro Botticelli, Marilyn Monroe and Phil Silvers, Sarah Bradford and Harriet Tubman, John August Swanson and Corita Kent, Max Thalmann, Jane Austen, and much more.
The exhibitions is curated by Nina Keen, graduate student in English, with editorial assistance provided by Rachel Mullens, ’18.
