Curated by Miriam Glatfelter ’24, the inaugural Susan ’77 and Joseph Biernat ‘75 Intern, this exhibition examines the literary themes in works of art from the collection of Mary Margaret Stewart (1931-2021), a beloved Professor Emerita of English at Gettysburg College (1959-1996). Reading Mary Margaret Stewart features prints of notable authors, including Virginia Woolf and Edgar Alan Poe, as well as works that allude to stories, such as Mark Twain’s “The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” and others that include text as a central component of the composition, as seen in Robert Indiana’s print titled The American Art. Glatfelter not only considers these various references to fiction and poetry, but she also invites the viewer to read the works in the context of Stewart’s own scholarly pursuits and love of art.
