Laura Bergin '17

Laura Bergin ’17 had never curated an art exhibition in her life. In fact, she wasn’t even an art history major. Yet that didn’t stop her from proposing and then curating a powerful exhibition on conflict over the course of 10 weeks as an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Summer Scholar.

Bodies in Conflict: From Gettysburg to Iraq,” features photographs, scrapbooks, lithographs, and posters from the American Civil War, World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War, and the War in Iraq.  It is on display until Oct. 22 in Schmucker Art Gallery.
