Land Grant

Exhibition Website

Jan 27 2017 - Jul 8 2017

Land Grant draws from libraries, archives, and collections across campus to propose an expanded field for considering the university—its founding and history, land use practices, and questions of indigeneity—all while assessing the current status of public higher education in the United States. Recognizing the ability of images to both legitimize and contest power, and experimenting with curatorial methods of evidence and inquiry, this exhibition takes stock of where [....] university students stand today in relation to such questions.

Land Grant incorporates materials from Krannert Art Museum, the Rare Book & Manuscript Library, University Archives, the Map Library, the Illinois History and Lincoln Collections, the Ricker Library of Architecture and Art, and the Geological Samples Library.
