In the News: "Benjamin West's Paintings Celebrate an Empire" and "UMMA Exhibit Examines When the British Ruled America"


Two articles this week in the University Record highlight Clements Library materials currently on display at the U-M Museum of Art. In "Benjamin West's Paintings Celebrate an Empire," Carole McNamara of the Museum of Art writes about the exhibit which features the Clements Library's iconic "Death of General Wolfe" painting. Kevin Brown's article "UMMA Exhibit Examines when the British Ruled America" describes the exhibit curated by Brian Dunnigan and Clayton Lewis of the Clements Library. On display are books, maps, and manuscripts from the Clements Library collections, including several larger items never before displayed to the public.


These exhibits will be on display at the U-M Museum of Art through January 13, 2013. For more information about Clements Library exhibits and upcoming events, see our website
