“Reflections” takes work from three art collections (Dow, Castellon, and Ziegfeld), in the Gottesman Library archive, that has been selected for their connection and counterpoint to each other. The exhibit is inspired by Alice in Wonderland, the recent film Us, and the principles of art therapy. “Reflections” was curated by members of the library staff to examine the art of the library in new ways.
The method of selection for artwork relied on the idea of reflecting, or similarities, in style, medium, and themes within the artwork. On the left side of the Offit gallery, the artworks contain color while artworks on the opposite side are monochrome. The theme is also represented in the style of the banner, description, and plaques for the artwork by using mirrors and mirroring to represent the exhibit title and concept.
