As part of the Exhibition Seminar course offered at Grinnell College, fourteen students worked with guest curator Victoria Rovine to organize the exhibit and write the catalog. The catalog provides information on sculptures, masks, drums, and other objects from the college's permanent collection that were used for this exhibit.
