Endangered Stories: Student Perspectives on POYi 

Undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in the SVS Museum Studies course selected photographs from MU’s Pictures of the Year International (POYi) archive to curate Endangered Stories. The show weaves together two narratives. One highlights the stories and struggles captured by photojournalists, who connected specific events to broader social, political, and environmental concerns. The other underscores the resonance of those moments with students today, who see contemporary concerns in these historical records. Together, they speak to the role of archives in preserving the past and composing new histories. 

OPEN/WORK: MU Museum Studies Lab 

Open Work is an exhibition space devoted to student research in museal display, engagement, and interpretation. Recognizing the gallery as a medium in itself, students think creatively and critically about sites of representation as well as their cultural roles and responsibilities. Open Work presents student-led collaborations that experiment with design strategies, cultural presentations, audience engagement, and educational programming.
