Pictured, left to right, are Nancy Noble, visiting instructor in art history; Clare Rogan, curator of the Davison Art Center; and Nadine Orenstein, curator of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Department of Drawings and Prints. Orenstein, the guest lecturer, presented "Scratches, Specking and Crooked Lettering: Rembrandt's messy Prints" in conjunction with the DAC's current exhibition "Multiple Fascinations: Dutch and Flemish Prints form Bruegel to Rembrandt."

The Friends of the Davidson Art Center consists of Wesleyan faculty, staff, alumni, students, area residents and friends of the arts. Their purpose is to raise funds for acquisitions for the DAC collection.
