The new exhibit in Silver Special Collections, "Work of Art: Dancing Together in Vermont," examines the process involved in creating diverse dance communities, from groups of girls and boys in clever costumes tap dancing across school stages to performers exploring familiar landscapes in new ways.

 

Join us as we celebrate the launch of a new book by Stephen Terry and student research assistant Louis Augeri.

Fleming Museum curator Alice Boone curated the new Special Collections exhibit, “Archives of Activism.” Drawing from documents and ephemera produced by students, faculty, and administrators, the exhibit focuses on anti-war and related protests during the late 1960s, the call for divestment from apartheid-era South Africa in 1985, and the occupations and protests of 1988 and 1991.
