First Fridays: Virtue & Vice in the Stacks - Kindness and Envy

Date: 03/05/2010

Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Location: 120 Elmer L. Andersen Library

Cost: Free

Description:

Envy
History has revealed an enduring desire to feel chic and dress luxuriously. Objects from the Goldstein Museum of Design's collection will be used to highlight the power that clothing can have over our senses, the status ascribed to those who dress richly, and the envy that others' clothing can elicit in us.

Kindness and Envy
The wealth of the garden can inspire kindness through sharing the fruits of labor. It can also inspire envy - which neighbor has the plumpest pumpkin, the most delightful dahlias? Kathy Allen will share the range of beauty contained in AHL's historic nursery & seed catalog collection, one of the largest in the country.
