Eleanor D. Wilson Museum Virtual Tour

Here’s a look into two virtual exhibits currently showing at the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum:

  • WORKERS: Photographs by Yulandra Livingston ’14
    Photographer and longtime Hollins staff member Yulandra Livingston ’14 created this body of work in 2013-14. In these sensitive, straight-forward photographs portraying minority business owners in Roanoke, Virginia, Livingston grapples with the question: Does the American Dream still exist?
  • Women Working with Clay: Ten Years of Telling the Story
    Featuring 50 works by 50 women artists who have presented at the symposia, this exhibit celebrates the stories, memories, and accomplishments of women in the field of ceramics. Topics explored through this exhibition range from the retelling of folktales, fables, and myths to the far-reaching impact of the history of colonialism and slavery; each work celebrates the beauty and poignancy of the inclusion of handmade objects in daily life.
