William H. Wright Special Collections Exhibition Area

Arts Library Special Collections showcases its collections on a regular basis in the William H. Wright Special Collections Exhibition Area in the lower level of the Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library.

Collections in Conversation: Drama
Through June 30, 2009

Curator, Colleen Reilly

Collections in Conversation is the first in a series of three exhibits featuring the major holdings of the Arts Library Special Collections through the lens of a single discipline. This exhibit highlights materials that depict, document, and draw on the history and practice of theatre across the Architecture, Art History, Arts of the Book, and Drama collections. The exhibit includes selections from the Yale Rockefeller Theatrical Print Collection, the Puppetry Collection, the Faber Birren Collection of Books on Color, the Bookplate Collection, and selected artists’ books. The placement of these items alongside one another points to the possibilities of interdisciplinary research across these rich collections.
