Exhibition: "Like a Great Roman Ruin"

The College Hall Fire and Anne Whitney at 100


Sunday, June 22, 2014 - 11:00am
Location: Lawrence and Ina Lee Brown Ramer Gallery

This Exibition runs from March 17th - July 20th.

Co-curated by Jacqueline Marie Musacchio '89, Professor and Chair of the Art Department, and Andrew Shennan, Provost and Dean of the College, this exhibition includes objects and documents from the Davis, Archives, and Special Collections, as well as loans from the alumnae community. It examines art and life in College Hall from the founding of the College in 1870, to the great fire that decimated the building and its contents in 1914, to the fundraising and rebuilding efforts that followed.

The exhibition focuses particular attention on Anne Whitney's 1883 statue of sociologist Harriet Martineau (Gift of Mrs. Wilson Payne (Elizabeth Rogers, Class of 1926)), a sculpture with a surprising role in the life of College Hall and a fascinating history. This exhibition is generously supported by Wellesley College Friends of Art, Wellesley College Archives, and the Office of the Provost and Dean of the College.

Staff Professional Development Session

Active Bystander (Part 2)


Wednesday, August 27, 2014 - 4:00pm
Location: Harambee House Living Room

We spend our lives engaging with others, either directly or as observers. As bystanders, we see all kinds of interactions, some harmful and some positive. This two-part workshop will raise your awareness of what you are really seeing and provide the tools needed to enhance our culture. You will also practice how to intervene as an "active bystander" when you observe harmful or hurtful interactions. This is a two-part workshop; please attend both parts 1 and 2. Refreshments will be provided.
