Towne Center Exhibition

Senior Art majors Valerie Lazalier and Michelle Kimberlin have curated an exhibit in the Ruth Towne Center for the Center's "What Is This?" series.  The display features three pairs of tinted eyeglasses drawn from Special Collections in Pickler Memorial Library.  Developing the exhibition related directly to both students' interests:  Valerie will matriculate this fall into the Information and Library Science masters degree program at Indiana University and has a special interest in archives, special collections, and museums;  she has been doing an internship this semester in Special Collections at Pickler Memorial Library on campus.  For her Senior Thesis, Michelle worked on Claude Monet's experiences late in life with cataracts for which at times he wore special corrective glasses.
