Past Exhibits

  • In our digital age, it is sometimes easy to forget about the importance of printing in human history, particularly as many people now almost never hold a physical newspaper or book in their hands.
  • Alejandro Rodríguez Fornés “Alucho,” is a prolific graphic designer and an important figure in the use of emerging technologies and digital art in Cuban graphic design; this is his first solo exhibit in the United States.
  • Joint-appointed in Anthropology, Economics, English, Dance, Theatre, and History, Africana Studies’ core faculty professors’ interdisciplinary scholarship covers a diverse array of topics.
  • The Great War, also known as World War I (WWI) — or the World War to those hopeful that it would be the only one — affected almost every continent and impacted millions of individuals.
  • Community activists honor the ambition of the civil rights movement by engaging in volunteer service and joining in solidarity with marginalized peoples, continuing to make King’s dream a reality—at William & Mary, in Virginia, and across the globe.
  • Cover Art for The Night Before Christmas, 1904
    Lively and fascinating, and a bit different from our modern conceptions, the illustrations in this exhibit highlight the figure’s transformation from a mischievous little imp to the jolly, bearded Santa we know today.

    Veterans Day celebrates all those who served in the armed forces on November 11 each year. Accounts of their service on display describe not the combat bravery glorified in our society, but daily life during wartime: the monotony of watch duty, letters to loved ones seeking a connection to life at home, and photographs of people met and places visited.
