Dr. Soanes' Odditorium of Wonders September 12 – October 24, 2013 Main Gallery Curated by Jane Edmundson "Dr. Soanes’ Odditorium of Wonders" recaptured the spirit and aesthetic of the 19th century dime museum to invoke wonder in the viewer and to combine art, artifacts, and oddities to explore the boundary between education and amusement. The exhibition featured new works by artists Chris Flanagan, Denton Fredrickson, and Mary-Anne McTrowe, as well as art and artifacts from the University of Lethbridge Art Collection, the Galt Museum Collection, the University of Lethbridge departments of Biology and Drama, and numerous private collections. Includes a major publication. In this video, curator Jane Edmundson, summarizes the theme of the exhibition.+ More details
