Exhibitions and Projects

Each year the Art and Artifact Collections are utilized for public exhibitions on the Bryn Mawr campus in the Rare Book Room of Canaday Library, the Kaiser Reading Room in Carpenter Library, and display cases in the Archaeology and Anthropology Departments. Graduate and undergraduate students also engage in special research projects utilizing the collections. In many instances, these exhibitions and projects have generated online exhibitions of the Art and Artifact Collections. (Links to these exhibitions are provided below.)
