If a picture is worth a thousand words, then you will surely want to check out the Spring 2016 edition of Culver Alumni Magazine, which is now online. It’s loaded with plenty of incredible photography!
This issue highlights the unparalleled photo exhibit in the Crisp Visual Arts Center through July 31 – the works of Ansel Adams, Alfred Eisenstaedt, and Eudora Welty – all of it from the Academies’ collection. Also on exhibit is Degas’ Little Dancer, Aged 14, on loan from Michael Huffington ’65.
In addition, there is a sampling of some of the eclectic pieces that represent the schools’ history, memorabilia, and memories, all of it housed in the Academies Museum in downtown Culver. The museum, now in its seventh year, represents Culver’s attic, which begs the question: What’s in your Culver attic?
Collecting Culver also profiles museum curator Jeff Kenney and Bill Githens W’61, ’65 and Jerry Ney N’56, ’57, who collaborate in search of the unknown and hard-to-find Culver pieces. And among the timeless Culver treasures is retiree Fred Lintner and his collection of Southern Calendar Fashion Clocks.
