Crispin Jay Salapare III, Class of 2020

Williams Art Loan for Living Spaces

Each semester students borrow one of 123 original works of art from WCMA’s collection to hang in their dorms. Serving as temporary stewards to works by Albrecht Dürer, Paul Cezanne, Titus Kaphar, and Kiki Smith, among others, students connect with the artworks and record their reflections. Curated by student Crispin Jay (CJ) Salapare III, this exhibition tells the story of WALLS through the voices and perspectives of Williams students.

This selection of art from the WALLS collection is organized into four themes surfaced through student journal entries. It explores the potential of these works to serve as companions, sources of tranquility, sites of questioning, and conduits of memory. 

WALLS is made possible by the Fulkerson Fund for Leadership in the Arts established by Allan W. Fulkerson ’54.

Wednesdays and Fridays, Jun 20—Aug 24, 1-4 PM
