Unlocking Italy: A Legacy of Narratives

The exhibition consists of Italian art from the Etruscans and Romans through to modern painters and sculptures. It is designed to shape parallels between the narratives within the works and the viewer’s involvement through comparing the narrative relationships and the supportive use of ipads. This will allow people from all backgrounds to enjoy art on a relatable level rather than an intrusive one.  The ipads will help by allowing viewers to access more information on the works easily and more efficiently, if they so choose.  Overall, the idea is to create an environment that is comfortable and open to assist viewers to learn more about how to look at art. 

This exhibit was curated by Ms. Kathryn Harvey, a senior art history major.
