Reflections: Portraits that Capture IU’s Past

Name of Recipient

Claire Repsholdt

Description of Funded Activity

Opening in Kirkwood Hall on March 20, 2017, this project featured a selection of mid-20th century staff portrait photographs from the IU Archives Photography Collection.

Curated by an IU student, the portraits provided a way for viewers to examine overlooked elements of IU’s history, namely IU’s staff. The images are interesting because staff are posed carefully amid their work spaces and the unique accoutrements of their work.
