New Exhibition: A Conversation with George Washington


This first collection of portraits from the "Americans who tell the truth" collection by artist Robert Shetterly are being displayed in the foyer outside the Maxwell Auditorium, in Maxwell Hall, to elicit a conversation about citizenship.

These portraits of Americans, past and present, represent various ways of being active and engaged participants in our society. Their efforts illustrate the longstanding struggle to realize America’s democratic ideals, to advance the common good, and to reckon with the concepts of citizenship, democracy, and justice at different moments in history.

Through this exhibition, we aim to make a statement about the need for constructive reflection over the inclusion of all Americans and offer opportunities for conversation and learning that can deepen our sense of civic engagement.

New Exhibition: Voices of Maxwell


“Voices of Maxwell” features a rotating display of quotes by Maxwell community members who have made significant contributions to the school throughout its history in the entryway to Eggers Hall from the Lincoln courtyard.

The first series of displays honor the contributions of retired women faculty and staff such as Marguerite Fisher, the first woman to be promoted to associate and then to full professor in Maxwell.
