Art Museum reception to highlight undergraduate exhibitions

Materials from Special Collections will be featured in the Binghamton University Art Museum’s undergraduate exhibition: The Emerging Modern Woman: Ideals, Struggles, and Opportunities. Items in the exhibition are from Special Collections’ Rare Book collection and the John K. McLaughlin Collection.

A special reception will highlight two small exhibitions, curated by undergraduate students, from 5-7 p.m. Feb. 6, at the Art Museum. Handing Down the Past: Contemporary Pueblo and Mata Ortiz Pottery features artwork recently donated to the Art Museum by Terry Peet and Peter Bridge. Students of Siobhan Hart, assistant professor of anthropology, curated the exhibition. A second exhibition, The Emerging Modern Woman: Ideals, Struggles, and Opportunities, was curated by students from the Undergraduate Art History Association. Both student-curated exhibitions will be on view from Feb. 6-May 24.

Admission to the museum is free. For directions and museum hours, go online.
