Date: September 19, 2013
Andrews University invites alumni, friends and community members to enjoy a special campus-wide exhibition Sept. 26–Oct. 27, 2013. The event will showcase several of the campus’ most treasured artifacts, antiques and more.
During the course of its 112 years on the Berrien springs campus, Andrews University has amassed a significant collection of treasures, donated by generous individuals who wanted their possessions to inspire future generations, or pieces acquired through research and other scholarly activities of the university. Many of these treasures have been organized for public viewing for this first-time-ever comprehensive exhibition.
Installed in nine locations across campus, this exhibition will educate and enthrall audiences of all ages. Items on display include the largest complete woolly mammoth skeleton in Michigan, Sir Isaac Newton manuscripts, an authentic Rembrandt etching, Picasso etching, and two Chagall prints, a Syrian bronze statuette from 1500 B.C., mission artifacts, and a display of the last 150 years of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
