Cursive: Reading and Writing the Old School Way
June 16, 2018 @ 10:00 am - September 2, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
RECEPTION: FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 6:30 PM
In any style, cursive text, also known as handwriting, script, longhand, or running text, is the joining of the character symbols of language in a flowing manner, generally for the purpose of making writing faster and more efficient.
Ancient cultures developed systems of writing that have evolved and persisted into the 21st century. Featuring artifacts selected from the permanent collection, this exhibition traces the history of penmanship, never more compelling than in the digital age.
