The display will be available on the 5th floor of Gumberg Library from June 23-August 2, 2014 during the library’s normal operating hours. As an introduction to the exhibit and the ex-votos tradition, we will host a Lunch and Learn event on June 30, 2014, 12:30 p.m.-1:30 p.m on the 5th floor of Gumberg. Refreshments will be provided. An additional educational event will follow later in the summer. Check back here for further information.
The exhibit's intriguing intersection of medicine, art, and faith reflects the diverse range of disciplines and the interdisciplinary nature of Duquesne University. The exhibit is of interest to the Catholic community at large, in addition to students, faculty and staff in the health sciences, theology, and art history as well as in English, history, modern languages, philosophy, and communication.
More information about ex-votos can be found on the National Library of Medicine’s Everyday Miracles webpage.
