This exhibit tells the stories of freshmen year from participants in a student success intiative, WKU Freshmen Guided Pathway (FGP). This cohort of first-time, full-time students who graduated from one of five high schools in Warren County represent the typical WKU freshman in terms of academic achievement prior to admission and their demographic makeup.
Primarily featuring textiles from the Kentucky Museum and Kentucky Historical Society, Whitework: Women Stitching Identity explores the significance of early white embellished textiles that have been largely ignored, undervalued, and misinterpreted.
Gazing Deeply showcases how WKU’s backyard—the unique landscape of Mammoth Cave—is being studied, interpreted, and inspiring action on environmental change. Curated in partnership with faculty from the Crawford Hydrology Lab and WKU Art Department, in consultation with Mammoth Cave National Park.
We are scheduling appointments for anthropology students to have guided tours of our lab facilities in Fine Arts Center and Cherry Hall. Socially distanced, of course! Anthropology faculty and Kentucky Archaeological Survey staff will be your special tour guides.
