Please join us today from 3 pm to 6 pm for refreshments on Q-Level to celebrate the opening of the new M-Level exhibit, “The Magic Object: Prosperity and Protection in Antiquity.” The reception is hosted by Drs. Henry and Eunice Dauterman Maguire and students in their course, Creating a Museum Exhibition: The Magic Object. The students researched and curated the show, and assisted with the installation under the guidance of the Libraries’ conservation staff.
This collaborative effort between the Libraries and the new MuseumsÂ and Society program is invaluable for the students as it gives them an opportunity to experience every aspect of creating an exhibition for display in a public setting.
The exhibit will run through September 30, 2007.
