Hidden Treasures WESeminar
Watch distinguished art historians Joe Siry, professor of art history; Larry Silver P’08, James & Nan Wagner Farquhar professor emeritus of history of art at the University of Pennsylvania; and Miya Tokumitsu, curator of the Davison Art Center, discuss some special objects in the Davison Art Center during this virtual WESeminar. The Davison Art Center is the home of Wesleyan’s art collection, which is focused principally on graphic art and photography. The breadth of the collection is equaled by its outstanding quality; exceptionally fine impressions by Rembrandt van Rijn and Francisco de Goya, rare early engravings, and important contemporary artwork by artists including Kara Walker and Jasper Johns are only a few highlights. The Davison Art Center supports teaching, learning, and research in its study room, and presents public exhibitions in its gallery.
