At the end of Spring 2022, the Art Department’s American Modernisms class created an exhibition for UVA Library’s newly expanded collection The Masses 1911-1917, a radical journal edited by artists and writers equally. On September 22 from 5:30 to 7:30 the Special Collections Library is hosting a public reception where the student curators will be available to discuss their show on the first floor of the Harrison Small Building. Also, a terrific exhibition from the Holsinger Collection of photography is being celebrated and discussed.
The University of Virginia Library’s exhibitions program delights and informs by showcasing the rare and unique materials available to the University’s faculty, students, and visiting researchers. Partnerships—with other institutions to bring treasures to our galleries and with guest curators to bring fresh perspectives to our collections—allow the Library to serve the UVA community as an evolving space for discovery and celebration of our shared cultural heritage.
