Humanities & Engineering @ Union

Display Dates: September 2013

This exhibit showcased traditions and innovations that combine Humanities and Engineering perspectives in Union’s curriculum, student and faculty research, campus structures, and co-curricular and student activities. The exhibit also displayed treasures from Union’s Permanent and Special Collections including several rare Olivier Models (19th century teaching tools for engineering that echo forms in modern sculpture) and plates from Union’s copy of John James Audubon’s Birds of America (purchased directly from the artist himself, and displayed with background information about how Audubon “engineered” both image and story).
