Art Speaks: Voices from the HWS Collection

Exhibition at the Houghton House Gallery, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Geneva, NY, January-February 2005 co-curated by Smentek and the students in her advanced undergraduate seminar "The Art Museum." Students collectively decided on the theme of the exhibition, selected the works to be included, installed them and wrote labels and text panels. From the HWS student newspaper: “ 'Art Speaks: Voices from the HWS Collection' is more than just an ordinary exhibit; it is a collection that from the start has been organized by students, as a hands-on way of learning how to create an exhibit."
