Something to shout about
11 February 2013
Twelve brave University of Exeter students have volunteered to research their favourite object in RAMM’s displays and give a short public talk about it. Dubbed the RAMMbassadors, they will be getting on their soapboxes and singing the praises of their chosen object on Saturday 2 March between 10.30am and 3.30pm.
Many of the chosen objects could easily be missed on a fleeting visit and coming from varied disciplines (English, Classical Studies, History, Archaeology, Anthropology and Biochemistry), they have selected a wide range of objects, including a tiny Egyptian bracelet from the 1920s, a carved flying angel and a desk watch.
The presentations, a fascinating blend of personal insights with informed research, will be posted on YouTube along with supporting drawings.
The RAMMbassadors follow the 2012 success of a group of third year Art History students from PlymouthUniversity who presented talks about the paintings in our opening exhibition, Into the Light: French and British paintings from Impressionism to the early 1920s.
