Museum Studies Exhibition

April 4 – September 7, 2014

Two Museum Studies Exhibitions, titled Constructing Perspectives and Excessive, are featured in the Museum’s west galleries. Each exhibition was developed by one of two cohorts comprised of Ohio University students enrolled in Museum Fundamentals II, which is a practicum course offering students the opportunity to engage in museum practices. Constructing Perspectives seeks to consider whether boundaries are flexible or impermeable, and to what extent they are negotiated. Excessive explores the relationship between the indulgent fulfillment of perceived needs and the potential detrimental outcomes.

Gravestones: Photographs by Daniel Farber

June 6 – September 6, 2014

Daniel Farber (1906-1998) took photographs of colonial New England gravestones. His detailed gelatin silver prints capture the symbols and iconography common to early America gravestone art. Farber was devoted not only to the documentation and research of these artifacts, but also their preservation.
