Exhibition curated by Professor Linda Seidel, Alexandra Onuf, Helene Yentis, and Richard Born.

Based on the work of a Department of Art seminar, Visual Pedagogy: Collecting at the University of Chicago, this exhibition explores the ways in which objects, artifacts, and images have been collected, deployed, and displayed in teaching, research, and self-representation since the early days of the University. Professor Linda Seidel worked with students Alexandra Onuf and Helene Yentis to organize the exhibition. Featured collections are the Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae (a collection of nearly a thousand sixteenth- through eighteenth-century prints of Rome) and the Ludwig Rosenberger Library of Judaica. This exhibition was organized in conjunction with "Looking to Learn: Visual Pedagogy at the University of Chicago" at the David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art.
