Recent Acquisitions in the Book Arts and Private Press Collection

Each year we create an exhibition of newly acquired works in the Swarthmore College Book Arts + Private Press Collection by local artists, along with those featuring the region. In 2020, we take the gallery online.

The Reactor Room

The Reactor Room is a digital installation featuring the work of students in Professor José Vergara's course Chernobyl: Nuclear Narratives and the Environment (Spring 2020). This interactive exhibition seeks to facilitate public engagement with the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe and its associated mythology.
