Curated by Lead Curator and Curator of Plastics and Historical Artifacts\, Courtney Hicks\, Plasticized: The Proliferation of Plastics in the 20th Century presents archival materials which document a selection of plastics’ former lives\, aspirations\, applications\, and affects while also offering a glimpse into the world of those individuals and communities often invisible behind the plastic objects themselves. Featuring materials from the the Plastics collection area at Syracuse University Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center\,  these selections provide historical traces of those who imagined\, designed\, worked with\, consumed\, promoted\, marketed\, and resisted this uniquely synthetic material. Explore plastic through its industrial introduction to its universal presence in our everyday lives.
