Before Rosie the Riveter
This exhibition, focusing on the roles of women in WWI, is designed to complement the exhibition of the same title in the Phillips Museum. The online component features various pieces collected from newspapers, personal collections, and propaganda publications from the period. Items include photographs, prints, postcards, as well as other ephemera. They show women in many different roles during the war, such as building planes, conducting streetcars, selling war bonds, and driving plows. These items are arranged in the same way as the museum exhibit, featuring collections on women’s work with the Red Cross, Land Army, and YWCA, as well as in civic jobs (e.g. factories, police forces, post offices).
This online exhibit was co-curated by Professor Misty Bastian, Brandon Cunningham ‘15, and Raechel Richardson ‘15.

Emancipation 150: Local Lives and National Events
A commemorative exhibition of the 150th Anniversary of Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation developed and curated by Hackman scholars Heather M. Brown ’13 and Megan L. Brown ‘13, working with Professor of History and American Studies, Louise Stevenson. The exhibition reviews Lancaster’s role in the fight for freedom and the roles played by its citizens, including Thaddeus Stevens, Edward Gorsuch, the Prince Hall Masons, and William Parker.
Also, check out the online exhibition that features art related to the Emancipation 150 exhibition, designed by Brittany Baksa, Collections Assistant, in collaboration with Heather Brown and Megan Brown.
Curating the City
"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.
Zorach: Paint and Spirit
This exhibition was curated and designed by the students of Professor Linda Aleci's Curatorial Seminar.
