Ar[t]chive Logo

Ar[t]chive: American Art in Historical Context, 1930-1990 features works by 30 American artists from the Faulconer Gallery, Grinnell College Art Collection. The playful title of the exhibition reflects its unique installation: works are displayed in chronological order surrounded by local and global events from the time of their creation. By presenting the works in this fashion, the curators hope to draw attention to the interplay of art and history.    This exhibition was curated by students in Art 260 (Museum Studies: The Art Museum) at Grinnell College. As part of their course work, the students researched the art, wrote about it from various perspectives, and prepared both a gallery exhibition and an online site to share the art with the public. Their efforts contribute to the ongoing development of the collection as a resource for teaching and learning.
