The students of Professor Gail Gelburd’s Museums Studies Class have curated Ink’d: From Scarification to Personal Tatoos. This exhibition will be on view in the Student Center, room 223 from December 10th–17th, 2013. It opens on December 10 from 4-6 pm with a reception and series of educational and exciting events. The exhibition space will be open December 11th–13th from 12-2 pm and 5-7 pm, December 14th–17th from 12-2 pm.
Visitors will learn about sanitary means of tattooing and can get a henna tattoo drawn by one of the art majors. The exhibition focuses on the history and cultural variations of tattoos from African scarification to today’s proliferation of tattoos. The images are accompanied by didactic materials about each culture.
The students in the course devised the theme, conducted the research. They were divided into museum departments and curated the works, condition reported, catalogued and labeled the images, prepared accompanying educational programming, promoted the exhibition, managed the budget, and then designed the exhibition, the flyers, didactics, and labels. They worked as a team to carefully install the exhibition and open it up for public viewing.
Gail Gelburd is Professor of Art History.
