Curating the City

Lancaster Spring ArtWalk 2013

Come out this weekend, May 4th and 5th to join staff from the Phillips Museum, Prof. Linda Aleci, and student curators who will be representing the exhibition at 214. West Grant Street.  Listen to the podcast below, courtesy of Wood Stove House, highlighting four featured stops and special projects for this year's ArtWalk.

Curating the City: People and Places in Lancaster, PA

"Curating the City" is an online exhibition created by the students of Professor Linda Aleci's Curatorial Seminar. Using historical photographs, audio recordings and other media, the exhibition maps the city as a complex, sometimes hidden collection of stories that reveal the economic, cultural, and social relations shaping its urban form. Whether an F&M student or full-time resident of Lancaster, we hope that the exhibition will provide a renewed sense of appreciation, or offer a new, perhaps unexpected perspective of the historic city we have come to call home.
