October 29, 2013—Finding your way to the Mead just got a little easier...
This week Amherst College unfurled four bright banners to mark your approach to the museum. The handsome new banners hang on the lampposts that circle the Mead, to help students, faculty, staff, and other visitors find their way to Amherst’s world-class art collection.
Artfully designed by Su Auerbach, Amherst's Design Director for Print & Web Communications, and expertly installed by campus carpenters Paul Eddy and Timothy Eddy, the banners feature a diverse selection of art from the collection:
- Robert Henri's Salome Dancer
- Kobayashi Kiyochika's Night on the Sumida River (Sumidagawa yoru)
- William-Adolphe Bouguereau's Work Interrupted (Le travail interrompu)
- A Ghanaian Linguist staff finial (okyeame poma)
- Winslow Homer's The Fisher Girl
- A Mexican Tray (Batea)
Make your way to the Mead and see them today!
