Join us tomorrow, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27 from 4-5 pm on Zoom (Zoom Meeting ID: 923 7145 3875) for a chat with Brittany Luberda (SMU Masters in Art History ‘13), Anne Stone Assistant Curator of Decorative Arts, Baltimore Museum of Art! What is it like to curate outside the museum? Or curating objects, like quilts and furniture, that some people don’t think of as “art”? Brittany Luberda (SMU ‘13) of the Baltimore Museum of Art will chat with us via Zoom about her career as a curator of decorative arts, both in traditional museums and in historic homes. In her current job, Ms. Luberda oversees a growing collection of approximately 8,000 objects and furniture from North America, Europe, and non-Indigenous South America, curating exhibitions such as “She Knew Where She Was Going: Gee’s Bend Quilts and Civil Rights”. Earlier in her career, Ms. Luberda worked as the Research Assistant in Decorative Arts and Design at the Saint Louis Art Museum, and as a department assistant in both Conservation and Decorative Arts at The Frick Collection in New York. She has additional curatorial experience at the Dallas Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Smart Museum of Art in Chicago. In addition to talking about her career path, Ms. Luberda will also discuss the different options for curatorial work, including whether or not you need to earn a PhD in order to be a curator.

Aquatic Channels: Waterways, Water Resources, Fluvial Imagination turns rivers into lines of connection. Moving and flowing in many directions, these lines form a complex network of images, ideas, sounds, and objects, evoking a symbolic hydrography in the exhibition space. Bodies of water become the conduits of the meanings. Rivers shape human and non-human existence in their multiple roles as fundamental resources for sustenance of life. Rivers are spatial markers in continual reconfiguration. Rivers are political actors. Rivers preserve particles of the past. Aquatic Channels presents the works of Ubiratan Gamalodtaba Suruí, Gabriel Bicho, Laray Polk, and Carolina Caycedo and David de Rozas.
Aquatic Channels: Waterways, Water Resources, Fluvial Imagination is curated by PhD candidate in Art History Gabriela Paiva de Toledo. Funding supported by the Meadows Division of Art and Art History , SMU Libraries, and Friends of the SMU Libraries.

Opening reception: October 29, from 1 to 5 PM.
This exhibition occurs simultaneously at the Hawn Gallery at Hamon Arts library and the Po***ck Gallery in Expressway Tower.

We are looking forward to spring 2023!! Over the next two weeks, we will feature our Art History spring semester course offerings!

ARHS 1308: Epic of Latin America (taught by Professor Roberto Conduru) examines art, society, and culture in Latin America, 1450–1950. Presents art as a broad and multifaceted cultural problematic, and considers the enduring legacies and the dynamic processes of change that have shaped the region and its art. Topics include pre-Columbian empires; royal Spanish cities and revolution, reform, and modernism; Umbanda, Santeria, and Vodou; and Native American and gendered identities. An introductory survey course intended for undergraduate students of all academic and professional interests; no previous art history courses or experience with Latin America necessary. Includes slide lectures, classroom discussions, and visits to SMU and Dallas museums.


Opening today!
The Joy of Cooking: Two Centuries of Cookbooks at the DeGolyer Library
The exhibit highlights the vast collection of cookbooks preserved in our library. They are a storehouse of recipes, as well as a sign of technological, sociological, cultural, and economic change over time. From handwritten recipe collections and household guides of the 19th century, to ‘reducing’ cookbooks of the 1920s and the rationing cookbooks of World War II, this exhibit charts changing attitudes and approaches to homecooked meals.
The Joy of Cooking exhibit will also examine food communities in America, including Jewish cuisine, African American foodways, and church and community cookbooks.
If we are what we eat, cookbooks can tell us much about our character in the past.

The Meadows family is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Jan Sloman, Principal Associate Concertmaster of the Dallas Symphony and former educator at SMU Meadows.

Meadows violin faculty member Diane Kitzman commemorated Mr. Sloman saying:

"Jan Sloman, my stand partner and friend will be deeply missed. He was an outstanding musician and exceptional teacher. He was an enormous presence in the lives of aspiring young violinists establishing successful studios in Dallas and The Cleveland Institute of Music. His intelligence, wit, and dynamic personality will long be remembered."
