Paula A. Bigboy '03, Curatorial Intern

They Still Draw Pictures is a stunning exhibition of children’s drawings completed during various twentieth-century wartimes from the Spanish Civil War to contemporary Kosovo. The exhibition has been arranged in a chronological discourse that wrenches the heart with innocent yet observant detail and raw emotion in sections entitled “Before: Memories of Loss,” “War,” “Displacement,” “Camps,” and “Peace.”

Hood Quarterly, spring 2003
Allen Hockley, Associate Professor of Art History, Dartmouth College, and curator of the exhibition

The ukiyo or floating world refers to the entertainment districts of Edo (now Tokyo) and the lifestyles and sensibilities they engendered. Taking glamorous courtesans and famous actors as their primary subjects, Japanese print artists of the eighteenth century developed a popular visual culture that explored the floating world’s intricate nuances in a medium that was highly sophisticated but relatively inexpensive.
