The Stories They Tell 4

This exhibit, cultivated from the RIT Archive Collections and the RIT/NTID Deaf Studies Archive, seeks to share stories of the RIT community through documents, photographs, yearbooks, memorabilia, and other items. The exhibition is the product of a museum studies course Cultural Informatics (MUSE 359), which fosters an annual collaboration between the Museum Studies Program and the RIT Archives to curate from the collections. Under the direction of Associate Professor Juilee Decker and Associate Archivist, Jody Sidlauskas, the following students created the display on view on the first floor of The Wallace Center: Taylor Carpenter, Amber DeStevens, Cameron Forbes, Linzie Fuechtmann, Kate MacLaren, and Patrick Toy. Each student researched, selected, and designed one of the exhibit cases you see here as part of the third such collaboration between Museum Studies and the Archives. For more information on the process of creating this exhibition, see https://ritmuse.wordpress.com/. We hope you enjoy learning about the items on view and the stories they tell.
