Holiday Newsletter

We are pleased to announce our spring 2019 exhibitions featuring faculty-curated Focus Projects: Aaron Glass’s The Story Box: Franz Boas, George Hunt and the Making of Anthropology and Paul Stirton’s Jan Tschichold and the New Typography: Graphic Design Between the World Wars. Sasha Nixon, who received her MA from Bard Graduate Center in 2018, is the curator of A View from the Jeweler’s Bench: Ancient Treasures, Contemporary Statements.

Read on for more news including holiday Gallery hours and upcoming events. There is still time to view Agents of Faith: Votive Objects in Time and Place —which New York Times critic Holland Cotter calls “a marvelous show”—before it closes. If you are in the neighborhood, please stop by; a special highlight is the Curator’s Spotlight Tour on its last day, January 6.
