An exhibit reflecting the work of students in ART 386: Art of Africa and ART 488: Basic Conservation of Art and Artifacts will run Sept. 21 – Dec.16, 2016 at Duane G. Meyer Library, Room 306, Special Collections and Archives.
The room is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Exhibit features objects on loan from several collections
This educational exhibit is the culmination of the best student research from the 2015-2016 Citizenship and Service-Learning (CASL) integrated courses ART 488: Basic Conservation of Art and Artifacts of Fall 2015 and ART 386: Art of Africa of Spring 2016.
Under Dr. Billie Follensbee, students researched the objects as part of their course projects. Objects studied are on loan from the Ralph Foster Museum, Drury University, Christian County Historical Society, the Mace collection, and other private collections. Access was also provided to the Union Campground Cemetery in Springfield so students could work at the site.

Join us in Special Collections for a reception 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 21, as the ART 386 and ART 488 students and project supporters come together to view the exhibit. This event is free and open to the public.
