In celebration of the University of Cincinnati’s Bicentennial, the DAAP Galleries are pleased to present "200 Years of Curation." Over the course of the university’s history, the facilities, technologies and individuals have changed and evolved, often replaced by new faces and spaces. The records of these changes and how we have arrived at this moment remain within books, archives and the various collections of UC. On an occasion such as this, it seems only relevant to look to the past as we envision our future.
In this unprecedented collaboration of five separate archives and collections from throughout the university, "200 Years of Curation" takes stock in the history and advances made and the individuals that contributed to the expansive fields of study practiced within the Colleges of UC. This exhibition features an array of objects, artifacts, documents and works of art that have been pulled from display, library stacks and storage facilities throughout campus to provide a glimpse into some of the fascinating and unique collections that preserve the university’s history, building the foundation of Next Lives Here.
The exhibit features work from the Henry R. Winkler Center for the History of the Health Professions; the Archives and Rare Books Library; the Oesper History of Chemistry Museum; the Herbarium Collection; the Robert A. Deshon and Karl J. Schlachter Library for Design, Architecture, Art and Planning and the University of Cincinnati Fine Arts Collection.
Highlights of the collections included in the exhibit are:
