In celebration of the 40th anniversary of The Trout Gallery, this exhibition will showcase works of art from the permanent collection selected by Gallery audiences. In place of traditional object labels, Dickinson students, staff and alumni as well as Trout fans and Carlisle-community members of all ages share their personal interpretations of objects through statements they’ve written placed next to their chosen objects. These objects represent a range of time periods, cultures and media, just as the Trout's permanent collection, which has grown to a total of 11,000 works over the past 40 years, contains objects from six continents dating from the Neolithic period to the present. The object perspectives provided by Trout audiences allow for intimate, moving and unique reflections on the significance of humans in contact with original works of art. Visitors are invited to contribute to these reflections by sharing their own favorite works in an interactive display accompanying the exhibition.
