RIT Archives mounts new exhibits approximately two times a calendar year. While RIT Archives has physical exhibits in a variety of spaces, the main exhibit space is RIT Museum. Currently we do not have any exhibits up due to renovations to the library.
This digital exhibit features the work of Rochester editorial cartoonists John Scott Clubb (1875-1934) and Elmer Messner (1901-1979). Together, the lives of these two cartoonists span a century of change in the city of Rochester, the state of New York, and the United States as a whole. Looking beyond the brisk changes and innovations of their lives and work reveals patterns that still resonate today.This exhibit was a collaborative effort between Liz Call and Jody Sidlauskas in RIT Archives; Digital Humanities & Social Sciences Librarian, Rebekah Walker; and community member and donor, Melissa Corcoran Hopkins.
These series of student-curated digital exhibits are the creative end products of an ongoing collaborative program between Associate Professor Juilee Decker and RIT Archives. Students in the Museum Studies course Cultural Informatics (MUSE 359), curate both a physical and digital exhibit. Their exhibits seek to share stories of the RIT community through documents, photographs, yearbooks, memorabilia, and other items.
