ARH 360-01 - Exhibition Seminar

4 credits (Fall)
The Collecting of Islamic Art: Objects from the Kelekian Family in the Collection of the Grinnell College Museum of Art. In the 1980s, Nanette Kelekian donated a series of Islamic and Egyptian art objects to Grinnell College. In the 2022 exhibition seminar, students will work to situate the Kelekian donation both in its historical context, and its place in twentieth century collecting history in the United States. Students will work together with the Grinnell College Museum of Art to curate an exhibition of the Kelekian material, and to write a catalogue to accompany the exhibition. 

Prerequisite: One 200-level art history course. 
Instructor: Shea
