The Denison museum is always working on creating new exhibits, but this semester there are special connections to these exhibits.  A great new exhibit which opened on Sept. 5 features the work of Rowland Scherman through his photography.

The exhibit which came about when a current student of Black Studies professor John Jackson told the museum staff of her father, Michael Jones’, who is also a Denison alumnus.  Attention was brought to Jones because of his recent work with Sherman on his book Timeless.  Jones is one of the editors of the book and has been hugely successful in the fields of sports and entertainment law.

With Jones’ assistance, the museum staff put together the Rowland Scherman exhibition, a collection of images from the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s.

Because of Jones’ help with the exhibition, Jackson is working on plans for Jones to speak at a panel talk.  Career Services is also interested in having Jones speak due to his successes in various avenues of law.

The exhibit will continue to be open until Oct. 14, but the panel talk and career talk are scheduled for Oct. 4 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 5 at 4:30 p.m., respectively.
