    The Jenks Society for Lost Museums has given Brown’s nineteenth-century Museum of Natural History and Anthropology, a second life. Working with artist Mark Dion, the Society has re-collected scattered relics and remnants, transformed words into spaces, and fragments of curatorial description into spectral art. A three-part installation re-imagines the office of the museum’s founder, showcases the remaining fragments of the collection, and conjures the ghosts of artifacts once found in the museum back into existence – as reimagined by over 80 artists. The installation is on display through May 2015 in Rhode Island Hall, 60 George St. Summer hours are Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, visit http://jenksmuseum.org/.

    In Deo Speramus: The Symbols and Ceremonies of Brown UniversityIn Deo Speramus: The Symbols and Ceremonies of Brown University

    The symbols and ceremonies of Brown University embody its unique history, ...

    The symbols and ceremonies of Brown University embody its unique history, values, and identity. Many of these symbols, such as the shield that rises above the Van Wickle Gate, are emblazoned in architecture. Others, including the Alma Mater, are made material in song. Brown’s mascot, the Bear, animates campus spirit on the athletic field and beyond. Formal academic processions during convocation and commencement display Brown’s social order and its changing human fabric. These symbols and ceremonies establish solidarity within Brown's community and transcend its campus to make connections to the wider social spheres of which Brown is a part. On the occasion of the University's 250th anniversary, this exhibit assembles Brown’s symbols so that we may see and hear what they have to say. This exhibit was made possible through funding from the Brown University 250th Anniversary.
