"Reflections” takes works from three art collections (Dow, Castellon and Ziegfeld), in the Gottesman Libraries archive, that have been selected for their connection and counterpoint to each other. Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, the recent film “Us”, and the principles of art therapy, “Reflections” was curated by members of the library staff to examine the art of the library in new ways.
The Students of Arthur Wesley Dow Collection comprises 300 collected works were created by Teachers College students studying under Professor Dow in the early 1900’s. Mostly paintings and prints, the works in the Collection clearly illustrate Dow’s theories and approach to art.
The Federico Castellon Memorial Print Collection comprises a collection of 78 prints donated to Teachers College by established printmakers throughout the United States under the aegis of the Society of American Graphic Artists.
The Ziegfeld Collection of International Children’s Art comprises about 350 paintings, drawings, prints and collages made by adolescents aged 10 to 18 from 32 countries across the world. The Collection was originated in the 1950’s by Dr. Edwin Ziegfeld (1905-1983), the creator of the arts and education program at Teachers College.
