First impressions are often incorrect; take a second look at the UMass Dartmouth campus through the eyes of the architect, Paul Rudolph. The exhibition entitled, UMass Dartmouth: The Original Intent Behind This Concrete Jungle, examines Rudolph’s design principles and his original intent for the campus. The exhibition challenges the misconceptions and the myths that surround the campus and provides insight into Rudolph’s innovative approach to modern architecture. The exhibition showcases original drawings, photographs, and artifacts from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Archive.
For the first time, Art History students are curating an exhibition as part of the Senior Seminar practicum. All components of the exhibition: from creating and producing the catalog to the curation and installation of the exhibition have been done by the students.
