Renaissance Cabinets of Curiosity

Utah Museum of Fine Art Exhibit: Collecting Knowledge: Renaissance Cabinets of Curiosity, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UtahCollecting Knowledge: Renaissance Cabinets of Curiosity January 27 through May 15, 2011 at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts explores items that were typically found in cabinets of curiosity in sixteenth and seventeenth century Europe, including prints, books, scientific instruments, and objects obtained through travel. This exhibition examines the people who created cabinets of curiosity, their strategies for classifying and grouping items, and how they used this knowledge to make sense of their world.

During Fall Semester 2010, four graduate students in the University of Utah Department of Art and Art History gained first-hand knowledge of the work involved in creating an exhibition. The result of their hard work is the exhibition Collecting Knowledge: Renaissance Cabinets of Curiosity. The students were advised by Professor Sheila Muller and they worked closely with UMFA staff to complete all necessary steps for curating an exhibition— from developing exhibition themes to selecting the objects; from writing the object label text to planning the exhibition design; and from securing related public programs to creating an effective marketing plan.
