A MEMBERS/FACULTY/STAFF RECEPTION WILL BE HELD ON APRIL 3, 6:00-8:00 PM

This exhibition is part of a required practicum course for art history majors called The Curatorial Project. Alan Braddock, Ralph H. Wark Associate Professor of Art History and American Studies at W&M, will teach the course and lead the curation. “...W&M art history majors in the The Curatorial Project are gaining valuable real-world experience in organizing and implementing an exhibition,” Braddock said. “Through hands-on training, they are learning how to be curators. My colleagues and I in the Department of Art & Art History are thrilled about this new educational initiative, and we look forward to its future iterations, which we are confident will benefit everyone involved.”
The exhibition will explore ceremony as a vital cultural impulse expressed by communities and individuals around the world through a diversity of artistic forms and objects, some grand and some quotidian, some celebratory and others somber.
Free to Members, W&M Students, Faculty, and Staff
