Linda Hancock. "Enough." Entry for Exploration 2014

Three exhibition galleries provide venues for a continuous schedule of exhibitions interpreting research and collections in the humanities. Recent major exhibitions have included Home Front: Daily Life in the Civil War North, The Aztecs and the Making of Colonial Mexico, and Make Big Plans: Daniel Burnham’s Vision of an American Metropolis. These physical exhibitions were accompanied by Digital Exhibitions that have lived on after the exhibits concluded their limited runs. The Newberry also curates stand-alone digital exhibitions on themes and subjects inspired by our collection strengths. Read more about our Digital Resources.

Our Past Exhibitions, and the digital resources associated with them, reflect the various folds of history that Newberry collection items illuminate. If you are planning a visit, you can learn more about how to Visit an Exhibition or Attend Programs and Events.
