How Did I Get Here?
September 6–December 11, 2011
During the spring 2011 semester students in the History of Art and Architecture course Art Museums: Theory and Practice were invited to select a recent acquisition from the Middlebury College Museum’s permanent collection as the focus of their research. Just as each student who matriculates at Middlebury has a story to tell about the journey to campus, every object that enters the museum’s collection comes with a history. In addition to displaying the objects, this exhibition discusses the context from which they come and the significance of their addition to the collection.
