Catalog of the exhibition held Feb. 6-Mar. 14, 1998 at the Trout Gallery, Emil R. Weiss Center for the Arts, Dickinson College.

Senior Exhibit, Fine Arts Department, Professor Peter M. Lukehart, Dickinson College.

Expressions of Society therefore represents a cross-section of the Potamkin collection which is as diverse and individual as the twenty students who selected the works...The students made the decision to choose works that represent all aspects of the collection, including not only drawings, paintings, prints, and sculpture, but also books, art periodicals, and posters. Thus the exhibition includes both fine art and material culture, which we jointly felt spoke to the breadth and the variety of the Potamkin collection at Dickinson. On one level, Expressions is a show about the Potamkins as collectors; on another, it bears witness to the personal and emotional responses of the students to individual works within that collection.
