An Exhibition on the History of Carleton, Curated by Carleton students

Curated by students in Baird Jarman’s History of Campus Planning course and Sara Cluggish’s Curatorial Seminar course, Imagined Futures, Forgotten Pasts explores the architectural history of Carleton College from its founding in 1866 until today. Partnering with the College Archives, students in both courses have researched the college’s rich history — gathering architectural plans, photographs, correspondence, promotional materials, and more.

The display reveals plans for structures never realized, remembers buildings that were demolished, and details the repurposing of campus space over time. As the college enters a new phase of campus planning, this exhibition offers Carleton’s community the opportunity to reflect upon campus architecture and its significance.
