PopUp Exhibition | Lauren Cooper with Francesco Spagnolo on The Making of From Mendelssohn To Mendelssohn

Apr 6, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Lauren Cooper, a Comparative Literature major and Spanish and History minor (2016) at UC Berkeley, and the Managing Editor of the Berkeley Fiction Review, has been engaged as an Undergraduate Research Apprentice at The Magnes since 2014. She has collaborated in the making of multiple exhibitions, and helped creating an online companion to the Magnes catalog, The Jewish World (2014). Together with the curator of The Magnes, Dr. Francesco Spagnolo, Lauren will offer a guided tour of the exhibition, From Mendelssohn To Mendelssohn, and present on related collection items that remained on the “cutting floor” during the making of the exhibition.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition, From Mendelssohn To Mendelssohn.


About the PopUp Exhibition Series

Each week, UC Berkeley faculty and students, visiting artists and other notable guests present brief lectures focused on selected treasures from the The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life. One speaker and one object at the time, these “flash” exhibitions include the opportunity to view the art and artifacts discussed intimately and up close.

Bring your own lunch, enjoy complimentary refreshments, and take part in an exciting learning program, free and open to the public. Close-up view of collections included.
