Quick post: Exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; wrapping up the semester

November 9, 2015 · Leave a Comment

Hi everyone. Yes, I was overdue for a post, but it’s busier than usual the last few weeks, and then last week I had some minor surgery on my right foot. All is well and I’m back in business.

For today, just a quick post for anyone heading up to NYC soon. My friend James Doyle is assistant curator in the Department of the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and he has helped curate this exhibition with the chief curator, Joanne Pillsbury, Design for Eternity: Architectural Models from the Ancient Americas. You can read more about the models in blog posts from the museum here (there are only two at the moment, since it’s a new exhibition) and information about visiting the Met here.

Second, If there are any Georgetown faculty or students reading this, let me know how I can help you finish up the rest of the semester. This is the time when many students are at least starting preliminary work on their final papers. Professors, let me know if I can come to your class for a presentation on library resources (as specific or as general as you’d like, and for as short or as you’d like), and students, feel free to meet with me in person for research assistance, and or even chat via my research guides for help. If I’m logged into chat (and I’m not right now because I’m writing this!) a chat box will appear. I actually “met” with a student last week this way while I was out with my foot and it worked well. My e-mail is mrs249[at]georgetown.edu

Have a great week! More soon.
