Through a remarkable array of rare books, manuscripts, and artifacts from the collection of Jay (’77) and Eileen (’76, ’78) Walker, this exhibition showcases imagination as a driving force throughout history and celebrates the adventure of discovery, learning, and creativity. Collecting Imagination features such treasures as an original Soviet Sputnik alongside a U.S. Vanguard satellite, a cuneiform cone from 2000 BC, and a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible. This exhibit marks the first time an extensive selection of objects from this unique private collection has been on public view.
