Photo Friday

By Jennifer Tisdale

Each Friday, the Ransom Center shares photos from throughout the week that highlight a range of activities and collection holdings. We hope you enjoy these photos that reveal some of the everyday happenings at the Center.

The Byron and Susan Sewell Collection of Lewis Carroll contains numerous dolls and figurines relating to ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ Efforts are underway to evaluate the collection and rehouse the dolls and figurines. Photo by Anthony Maddaloni.

How about putting those dolls on display? Has the HRC ever done a Lewis Carroll show?

In the spring of 2015, the Ransom Center presents the exhibition “Down the Rabbit Hole: Alice at 150.” The year 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.” Drawing on the Ransom Center’s book, manuscript, photography, performing arts, and personal effects collections, this exhibition will take visitors down through the rabbit hole into annotated “editions” of both “Alice in Wonderland” and its sequel, “Through the Looking Glass:” key characters, scenes, and poems will be surrounded by clusters of objects from the collection that offer interpretations and explanations of Dodgson’s nonsensical and brilliant inventions.

In 1998, the Ransom Center presented “Reflections in a Looking Glass: A Lewis Carroll Centenary Exhibition.”
