The Artifacts & Exhibits Studio
The Loyal Jones Appalachian Center’s Artifacts & Exhibits Studio is the behind-the-scenes workcenter where the Curator and student Curatorial Associates working under Berea’s Labor Program care for the artifact collections and produce the Center’s exhibits and media. In many ways the A&E Studio functions like small museum program within the LJAC.
The A&E Studio has museum-quality artifact storage facilities and manages approximately 4,400 cultural artifacts and specimens. It serves as steward of and provides access to three Berea College Artifact Collections:
- The Appalachian Studies Teaching Artifact Collection
- The Berea College Historical Artifact Collection
- The Berea College Wallace Nutting Furniture Collection
To learn about these collections visit the online artifact collections guide at Hutchins Library.
Studio for Exhibits and Media
The A&E Studio also maintains a small studio/workspace/lab for the in-house production of exhibits and educational media. The productions populate the Appalachian Center Galleries and support courses and student/faculty projects.
