The First University Art School: 150 Years of the Yale School of Art

Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library

September 20, 2019 to January 18, 2020

This exhibition celebrates the first 150 years of the Yale School of Art. When the School of Fine Arts opened in Street Hall in 1869, Yale became the first university to create an art school. Through items from Manuscripts and Archives and Arts Library Special Collections such as early photographs, departmental records, and student work, this exhibition illustrates moments in the evolution of the Yale School of Art, the faculty and students who have shaped the school, and the spaces they have inhabited.

Curated by Miko McGinty (’93 BA, ’98 MFA) and Mar González Palacios, Associate Director, Arts Library Special Collections
