Head over to University of St. Thomas for Remembrance of Past Things: Memory, Mourning and Ritual, an exhibition that opens this week and runs through Jan. 26th, 2012.
The show features items of primarily local origins that create remembrance and assure that an idea, event or person is “gone but not forgotten.” Included are photographs of memorials and the people they honor, clothing, accessories and other ephemera of mourning.
Dr. Steven Nelson will present the lecture “Mary Magdalene Campos-Pons: Memory is Feminine” in conjunction with the exhibit on Thursday, Nov. 17th at 6 p.m. in the O'Shaughnessy Educational Center auditorium with a reception afterwards.
Free and open to the public.
