Brian Wallace knows a lot about academic institutions. He’s worked for a number of them. Now, as Curator and Academic Liaison for Art and Artifacts at Bryn Mawr College, he is organizing exhibits and learning about the vast holdings of the College. Brian’s first exhibit at Bryn Mawr, Docu-Commencement (ended Dec. 14) commissioned four artists to create work on the theme of graduation. In organizing the exhibit, the curator worked with Public Safety officers and staff in other departments, all of whom were very happy to be introduced to the contemporary art that resulted from the project. Brian is a very excellent talker — words flow out of him in fluid paragraphs of thought.
