“The Curious Drawings of Doctor Clapp” and “Metal from Clay: Pittsburgh’s Aluminum Stories” opened last month at Pitt’s University Art Gallery.
“Doctor Clapp” is curated by undergraduate museum studies students in classes with professors Alex Taylor and Christopher Nygren over the past two semesters. The exhibition features a selection of 15th- to 18th-century Italian drawings along with other items from George Hubbard Clapp’s collections.
“Metal from Clay” explores the histories of aluminum through a selection of objects and other original materials from Pittsburgh collections.
The exhibitions are complimentary and open through Dec. 6. The gallery is located at 650 Schenley Drive.
