Exhibition Seminar

A highlight of the art history curriculum is the Exhibition Seminar, a rare opportunity for undergraduate students to curate a professional exhibition using objects in the Grinnell College Art Collection. The seminar culminates in a show in the Faulconer Gallery and in the publication of a catalogue students have researched, written, and produced. Links to sample pages from previous Exhibition Seminar catalogues are below.

We plan an exhibition on painted manuscripts and collecting practices in 2021–22.
