Classics MA student curates exhibit at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre

Over this past term (Winter 2019), one of our very own MA students, Alysha Strongman, curated an exhibit, entitled "Puvirnituq Graphic Arts in the 1960s" featured at the Agnes’ Spring/Summer Season Launch on Friday, May 3rd at 6:00 p.m. More details about the launch can be found here:…/de…/springsummer-season-launch-2/.

As well, Alysha will be giving a special "Art Matters" talk and tour about the exhibit on Thursday, May 16th from 12:15-1:00 p.m. All are welcome to drop-in for this free event. Details:

FYI: Alysha was awarded the inaugural Research Studentship in Indigenous Art. Her research involved curating this exhibition under the supervision of Dr. Norman Vorano, Curator of Indigenous Art.

Congratulations to Alysha!
