This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

The exhibition focuses on the portrayal of children in world art over the centuries, ranging from their depiction in seventeenth-century Dutch prints, to nineteenth-century Japanese photographs, to modern sculpture produced in such disparate locales such as India, Nigeria, and the United States. Twenty-one objects in various media have been placed on display here. In presenting them, it is our intention to shed further light on the significance ascribed to children in various cultures and time periods, as it was expressed in art. Curated by Professor Wayne Franits, Art & Music Histories, and art history majors in his Senior Seminar.

At this time, in person visits are limited to Syracuse University & SUNY-ESF students, faculty, and staff only.
