Congratulations to our graduating curators, and thank you for your work!
Be on the lookout for our photos in an exhibit at the Lakewood Public Library!
Diablada de Píllaro Exhibit: Photographer Leonardo Carrizo showcases photographs of the Diablada de Píllaro, a six day festival in the Ecuadorain province of Tungurahua. This exhibit documents the procession of a traditional partida (group) from the Tunguipamba community. The Diablada consist of several masked characters, most noticeable the diablos, wearing masks made of paper mache, animal horns, animal fangs and an assortment of decorations.
Thanks to a generous donation from Dr. Norman Whitten, our Student Curators, Brandon, D’Souza, Elaine Louden, Jenna Mayeres, and Frances Dillon have received the 2019 Whitten Scholarship for their dedicated work with the Collection. This semester, their work has focused on preparing the Collection for display in brand new display cabinets, as well as writing description cards for specific items within the cases.
Congrats, to our wonderful Curators!
