Brought Home: Objects and Stories from 50 Years of SST Exhibit
The exhibit offers a wide variety of mundane and exotic objects, fine art and folk art, including paintings, textiles, toys, carvings, costumes, jewelry, ceramics, baskets, masks and metalwork. Some were gifts from friends in the foreign country. All embody lasting stories and memories of people and events.
The items come from the earliest units, from 1968, in Guadeloupe, Costa Rica and Jamaica as well as the most recent ones in China, Tanzania, Peru, Senegal and Indonesia.
John Blosser, Professor Emeritus of Art, is curator of the exhibit, assisted by students Rachel Yoder and Katie Yoder. The exhibit is sponsored by the International Education Office and the Mennonite-Amish Museum Committee. Members of the planning committee are John Blosser, Jan Bender Shetler, Katie Yoder, Rachel Yoder, Ervin Beck and Barbara Smucker.
