About the Curator

My name is Lily Schwartz and I am a (soon-to-be) graduate of Smith College, class of 2020. At Smith, I majored in English Language & Literature on a creative writing track with a concentration in archives. This site is a project created for my Archives Concentration Capstone.

If you have any questions or comments regarding the site, please fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page.

I hope you are staying safe and healthy during the Covid-19 quarantine and that you find a small bit of solace from this collection of wonderful art.
