Slide Show: ‘Majestic 12’ Showcase of Student Exhibitions in the Watkinson Opens with Gala

Work by Fall Museum Studies Students to Remain on Display through June 2017

Hartford, Connecticut, December 28, 2016 – The opening gala of “Majestic 12,” the sixth annual showcase of student exhibitions in the Watkinson Library at Trinity College, was held on December 14, 2016. More than 60 people came from as far as 100 miles away to attend the opening of the showcase.

The exhibitions were created by students in American Studies 835, the fall museum studies course taught by Richard J. Ring, head curator and librarian of the Watkinson Library. The students each installed a sample of their items in one case in the reading room, where they will remain on display until June 30, 2017. The full exhibitions are online; links to all of the shows are here.
