The Living Objects/African American Puppetry’s Exhibitionfocuses on an often-overlooked aspect of our culture: the work of African American puppeteers. Co-curated by Paulette Richards and John Bell, this exhibition brings together puppets, performing objects, masks, and video by over twenty different puppeteers from the late 19th century to the early 2000s.

This Omeka site was created to offer online access as an alternative for people interested in the subject but unable to visit the physical exhibition.

The Ricky Renuncia Project

The RickyRenuncia Project’s main objective is to preserve digital materials (video, audio, images, news, tweets, among others) related to the resignation of the Governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosselló. We are collaborating with the Internet Archive to create a web collection on these events in order to create an interactive academic publication. The collection will be part of the Spontaneous Event Collections.
