Last week, the 2017 Faculty Biennial Show opened in the Davis Gallery at the Colby Museum. This three-week exhibition features a variety of artworks created by five distinguished faculty members of Colby’s art department.
Large and wonderfully varied, the Pestana Collection of World War I materials is a rich resource for the study of the 1914–1918 time period, reflecting Dr. Pestana’s long interest in World War I history and material culture.
