Fire and Light: Illumination in Religious Art

magdalen-annual-report-coverFire and Light is Noreen Whysel’s final project for Ken Soehner’s course, Museum and Library Research, at Pratt Institute School of Information and Library Science. The course took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and consisted of two weeks of full-time seminar and research training followed by a month spent researching the various items in the exhibit. The culmination of the project was a exhibition catalog of twelve pieces in the museum collection which exemplify the theme of illumination in religious and devotional art.
