Special Collections & Archives is pleased to announce a new digital exhibit: Guildwood Village. We invite you to take a stroll through the Toronto neighborhood that was once the home to the Guild of All Arts, an artist housing ground created by Rosa and Spencer Clark. Tahreem Farooqi, 3rd year Planning student at Waterloo, curated the exhibit using material from our Breithaupt Hewetson Clark collection.
We couldn’t do it without them! Our donors make it possible for us to continue to grow our collections and contribute to the research and scholarship of the university. Join us in celebrating them with our new exhibit showcasing items from the collections of those who make it all possible. From medicines of the 1910’s to polka music of the 1970’s, spirit trumpets to mortarboards, something from the interesting and varied lives of those in our community is sure to pique your interest.
“Books as muse” is the theme of the new exhibit at Special Collections & Archives featuring works from Tara Cooper’s FINE 230 printmaking class. Far from the world of historical essays, the print works on display were inspired by items in our holdings and reflect the diverse nature of our collections. The prints run the gamut from fairy tales and dance tracts to extinct birds and trans zines, and everything in-between. While the exhibit will be on display until March 2018, why not take a break from day dreaming about your winter vacation and come see it now?
