High Impact Learner: The Arts

Molly Reynolds '14 builds on art experience, will curate upcoming exhibit.

Reynolds, a senior art history major, was selected by gallery director Prof. Shannon Egan to curate Field and Factory: Chinese Revolutionary Posters, which runs in the Schmucker Art Gallery from Nov. 1 to Dec. 6. The exhibition will showcase posters purchased by Special Collections that provide a unique perspective into Chinese culture in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s.
