From the Stacks
The Newberry’s exhibition galleries will reopen Tuesday, March 2.
From the Stacks presents a range of Newberry collection items, including treasures and showstoppers, as well as aesthetically challenged materials that tell compelling stories about the past.
These items include printed books, maps, manuscripts, postcards, and other genres, from the later Middle Ages to the present.
Some were beautifully printed and others inexpensively produced; some are pristine and others well worn. Newberry curators have chosen these items to introduce visitors to our core collections, subject areas where we have deep, comprehensive, world-class holdings that are continually growing.
The items in the exhibition change several times each year, giving visitors the chance to see a variety of historical artifacts over time.
Funding for From the Stacks was provided by Joan and William Brodsky.
