In conjunction with Yale University’s yearlong celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of coeducation in Yale College and the 150th anniversary of women students at Yale, the topic of this spring’s Art in Focus is female artists. The student curators for the exhibition include Emma Gray, SY ’21; Sunnie Liu, JE ’21; Annie Roberts, SY ’21; Christina Robertson, SM ’22; and Olivia Thomas, MC ’20.

Art in Focus is an annual initiative by members of the Center’s Student Guide Program, providing Yale undergraduates with curatorial experience and an introduction to all aspects of exhibition practice. In researching and presenting the exhibition, the students are led by Linda Friedlaender, Senior Curator of Education; Jennifer Reynolds-Kaye, Curator of Education and Academic Outreach; and Rachel Stratton, Postdoctoral Research Associate.

The exhibition and accompanying booklet are generously supported by the Marlene Burston Fund and the Dr. Carolyn M. Kaelin Memorial Fund.
