Organized by museums and society senior and Evergreen Student Curator Kit Harris, The Art of Diplomacy: The Garretts in Rome focused on the years that John and Alice Garrett were in Rome while John was the U.S. Ambassador to Italy. The show explored how the Garretts used their status within Roman society to further an exchange between the art worlds of the two nations. Kit’s responsibilities included researching the history of the Garrett family, selecting objects to tell their story, writing text panels, and organizing the museum space.
