Muscarelle Museum of Art (Sheridan & Spigel Galleries) | April 5 – June 6, 2019
This spring, William & Mary students curated this exhibition as part of a required practicum course for Art History majors called The Curatorial Project (ARTH 331). The exhibition explores ceremony as a vital cultural impulse expressed by communities and individuals around the world through an incredible diversity of artistic forms and objects, some grand and some quotidian, some celebratory and others somber. Drawing upon collections at the Muscarelle, Special Collections Resource Center at William & Mary Libraries, and elsewhere around William & Mary, along with sociological ideas about the effervescent liveliness of communal artifacts Objects of Ceremony presents a rich and complex portrait of ritual events that shape and define daily life.
Free to Members, W&M Students, Faculty, and Staff. Non-Members: $5. Reserve or purchase tickets here!
