From Lace to Chains: The Making of a Print

January 18, 2019 through March 17, 2019
  • Rozeal, El Oso Me Preguntó.

For this curatorial project, students in a history of prints class in the School of Art, Art History & Design selected one old master print (pre-1850) and one modern (post-1850) print from Sheldon’s collection, each created with different techniques and for different purposes but with a shared focus on fashion trends of the day. Thinking about the cultural significance of the dress and style depicted in each helped the students situate these prints within the contexts of their production and original presentation.

The modern print, El Oso Me Preguntó (2016) by Rozeal, was selected for acquisition by the museum's student advisory board in 2018.
