The Cornell Casts and Their Discontents

 

cornellonhill 120"Firing the Canon," a College of Arts and Sciences Sesquicentennial exhibit opening in November, explores how Cornell's prized collection of plaster casts was "embraced, defaced, and dethroned." Cornell used to have one of the largest collections of plaster casts in North America, attracting many tourists to Ithaca. But over time, casts fell out of favor, and the collection deteriorated.

The official opening for "Firing the Canon" will be Thursday November 6th, at 4:30 pm, and will then be open weekdays in November and December from 10 am to 4 pm or by appointment. About twenty casts from Cornell's remaining 500 or so pieces will be on display. The exhibit is housed in the Weinhold Chilled Water Plant at 101 Forest Home Drive, next to Beebe Lake.
