Stories From the Attic: A Handful of Geneseo Histories
Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery is pleased to announcement its exhibit Stories from the Attic: A Handful of Geneseo Histories, developed by museum studies and curated by Rachel Kosinski. This exhibit explores aspects of Geneseo and Livingston County that might not be evident to students of the university. Spanning as far back as the Treaty of Big Tree, students will be able to see and touch an actual part of the ancient oak--while also being able to learn about slightly more recent things, such as the largest manufacturer of croquet sets in the United States and the Geneseo Normal School. Stories from the Attic will also explore Geneseo salt mines--one of the most important in the US--and the little-known existence of German Prisoner of War camps that existed during World War II.
Concurrent Exhibit: Preservation Project Exhibit: Portrait of Eliza Tooke Martin and Portrait of a Lady
This preservation project was made possible with support from the Office of the Provost. The two paintings were conserved by Eileen Sullivan during spring 2019 and returned to campus in November 2019.
All exhibits are free and open to the public. We look forward to your visit to the gallery. Gallery hours are Wednesday and Thursday from 1 to 4 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. For more information contact Lori Houtz at 585-245-5841 or Cynthia Hawkins at 585-245-5813.
