On Monday evening a crowd of students, staff, and members of the New Haven community attended the opening reception and exhibit lecture for the 2017 Senior Exhibit curated by Olivia Armandroff ’17. Olivia is the second Yale senior to curate a senior exhibit in the Sterling Memorial Library exhibition corridor. Her project was chosen by the SML Exhibits Committee from an exceptionally strong pool of applications. Olivia’s enthusiasm for her topic was obvious and infectious. She fielded questions like a seasoned curator. After graduation, Olivia is headed to the National Gallery in Washington DC. We wish her the best of luck, but we know she won’t need it.
Constructing a Pictorial Identity: Bookplate in the Golden Age of Collecting runs through October 6th in the Sterling Memorial Library Exhibition Corridor.
