As winter term begins, Perlman Teaching Museum’s Braucher Gallery presents a jumble of tables, mysterious metallic structures, and random diagrams and sketches. The “exhibition” contrasts sharply with the orderly student-curated A Collection Embodied in the museum’s smaller gallery.

Carleton's Perlman Teaching Museum is opening 2015 with a new exhibit titled "A Collection Embodied", which showcases new artwork recently acquired by Carleton College. This unique compilation of art was selected by a small group of Carleton students participating in a curatorial studies class (ARTH288). The students collaborated with the Perlman Teaching Museum's Director and Curator, Laurel Bradley. The team's primary focus was selecting artwork that displays a variety of aspects of the human condition ranging from political allegiances to notions of beauty and social connections. The exhibit includes over forty prints, photographs, ceramics and other creative works selected from the college's collection of over 600 art pieces acquired since 2006.
The exhibit is open from January 9 to March 11, 2015.
Monday-Wednesday: 11:00AM - 6:00PM
Thursday & Friday: 11:00PM - 9:00PM
Saturday & Sunday: 12:00PM - 4:00PM
