Mystery, Mischief and Magical Thinking presents a fanciful portrait of Carleton 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 Archive.

Holly Streekstra is a sculptor and installation artist who employs multiple modes and forms of expression in order to investigate our inner subjective states and psychic vulnerability in the contemporary world. She is especially interested in raising questions regarding our accepted notions and reactions, our choice to suspend disbelief, and our capacity for doubt.

Kelly Connole (Professor of Art, Carleton), Kate Fisher (Visiting Assistant Professor of Art, St. Olaf) and Juliane Shibata (Visiting Assistant Professor of Art, Carleton) educate students while maintaining active creative lives outside the classroom. While their bodies of work differ significantly, each of them frequently engages the structure of a cup: practicing, refining, and re-visiting this ancient form. Visit the Athenaeum this winter to see their recent work.
