Students in the Curatorial Studies class have been working on an exhibition devoted to some of GC's buildings. Entitled "From the Ground Up: Georgetown College's Spaces and Places," this show takes a look at the college's buildings and structures -- those that stand and others that have withered away. Items from the college's archives and other primary sources that tell the story of our campus and some of its buildings will be on view. "From the Ground Up" offers a glimpse into the past and aims to connect campus buildings and structures with cherished memories of these spaces and places. Special attention will be given to Rucker Hall (destroyed 1971) and the new Rucker Village (built 2011).
The following art and history majors are involved in the preparation of this exhibition: Jordan Gill, Katie Mann, Sarah McIntosh, Shawn McPeek, Dana Sabato, Jen Stephenson, Devon Stivers, Terrell Taylor, and Portia Watson.
Please join us next Friday, September 23 from 12-2 for a reception in the LRC. Everyone is welcome to attend the 1:00 p.m. Fireside Chat as well. The events are free and open to the public. Photos courtesy of Shawn McPeek (thank you, Birthday Boy!)

Studying, teaching and understanding classical art in Greece and Italy presents many challenges. Just consider the latest economic news out of Athens as one of many adverse effects on international travel. Within the distractions, political, touristy or otherwise, distilling the “source” that is ancient Greece is all that more convoluted.
For five weeks in the summer, I join a team of tight-knit professors – if not staunch classicists than specialists from a related field, like the arts, literature or history – trying to navigate through a flurry of misinformation and engender the most appropriate educational model. The “touristy” distractions are often embraced. With proper guidance, there is much reinforcement to be gained from the knock-off-statuary at Athenian Plaka, the legion-clad mimes of the Colosseum, even from the beach-life and dance clubs at Mykonos. The diverging agendas of other travelers and paddlers along the way are of great use, too. Consider, for instance, all the similarities, in both purpose and form, between Pliny’s account of ancient painters and the latest gift shop catalogue found at any of the sites from Delphi to Naples. Pausanias’s “Guide to Ancient Greece” from the 2nd century CE still serves as a quasi-itinerary for the study of the ancient sites today, and after all, for a very good reason.
You will also, unavoidably, examine the very issues of experiencing the classical world in its own setting. How is embracing the role of a traveler helping or hurting the experience? What is there (and then) for an art student to gain from the experience of ancient culture? Actually, it is only when you get there, that you begin to "enjoy" its answers.
