Centennial Art Exhibit Showcases 100-Year History
Mount Mary University’s centennial exhibit, The Mount Mary Story, is on display for public viewing in the Marian Art Gallery through November 23rd. The exhibit, which was in development for one year, is sponsored by the Mount Mary University Alumnae Association and was created by Mount Mary Archives, alumnae, students, faculty, and staff. It features photographs, narratives, artwork, videos, garments from the Historic Costume Collection, and artifacts including the first diploma from the institution.
The display depicts significant chapters of Mount Mary’s rich history through photographs of a “Parade of Presidents,” the evolution of the campus through new building expansion, distinguished visiting lecturers and guests, and a host of academic and extracurricular activities. A special “Then and Now” area features photographs of students spanning the decades displayed next to photographs of the same image recreated with today’s students.
The historic exhibit is open daily in Marian Gallery on the first floor of Caroline Hall at 2900 N. Menomonee River Parkway. Hours are 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m Monday – Friday, and 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The exhibit will be available for display off-site at no charge on a loan basis.
