Mystery, Mischief and Magical Thinking at Carleton presents a fanciful portrait of the College. From its miraculous beginnings, Carls have shown themselves to be curious, inspired thinkers. Exhibits and interventions within the library explore distinctions between rational thought and the power of imagination, bringing a new perspective to the College Archives.

Holly Streekstra is this year's artist in residence at Gould Library. She is a sculptor and installation artist who employs multiple modes and forms of expression, investigating what she considers our inner subjective states and psychic vulnerability in the contemporary world. She is especially interested in raising questions regarding socially acceptable notions and reactions, the choice to suspend disbelief, and our capacity for doubt.

This exhibit will be continuously installed over the course of Winter Term 2020.
