The Art of Storytelling

March 25, 2017 - March 4, 2018

Featuring selections from the FAC’s Native American and Spanish Colonial collections, this exhibition explores the many ways that objects tell stories. Stories explored through the objects include – morals, lives of the saints, origins, commodification and trade, collecting practices, cultural contact, disruption and destruction. This will be an interactive exhibition, wherein Colorado College faculty, students, community members, artists and visitors are invited to share additional stories about or inspired by the objects. Additional texts, videos or audio contributions will be archived and variously incorporated into the exhibition or made available through technology.
