Experience the virtual exhibition video walkthrough of Beyond Words here.

Curated by twelve Museum Studies students in Professor Susan J. Bandes’ Curatorial Practices course, this virtual exhibition explores the varied relationships between words and images. Words can advocate for equality and foster communities, or present political or religious stances. Objects range from traditional posters, books and quilts to newer forms such as zines, wearable art, and videos. They come from mass media or are singular objects mined from the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, the MSU Museum, and MSU Special Collections.

This exhibition is curated by MSU Museum Studies Curatorial Practices students: Zach Albright, Sophia Boismier, Benjamin Brewster, Sara Do, Aria Frawley, Natalie Gentry, Riley Johnson, Montana Major, Riley Schelhaas, Emily Schmidt, Katie S. Sullivan, and Lillian Young.
