Gilsonfest Exhibition at the StoryStudio
This digital presentation was produced by students in a Bard College course entitled, “The Window at Montgomery Place,” taught by professor of Myra Young Armstead during the Spring of 2019. As a combined History and Experimental Humanities course, the class provided students with the opportunity to think creatively and artistically of ways to use visual electronic media technologies to present historical narratives. Using Alexander Gilson's Life as a reference, the images address the scene themes of slavery, gardening at Montgomery Place, business and property ownership, and family/community connections.
