University of Oregon student curates exhibition of 1950s French artist books

University of Oregon History of Art and Architecture graduate student, Emily Shinn, curated the exhibition “Fernand Léger’s ‘Cirque’ and the ‘livre d’artiste’” at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art. Shinn worked under the guidanc eof  Danielle Knapp, McCosh Associate Curator, to complete this M.A. terminal project.

“I think the exhibition, my experience behind the scenes, and the final product open to the public, will provide a much needed example of an MA terminal project in Art History,” says Shinn. “It demonstrates the relationships possible for students between the Department of the History of Art & Architecture and the JSMA.” (Art Daily)
