Watkinson Exhibit: William Burges, Francis Kimball and Trinity’s Long Walk Buildings, “They Should Stand For Ages”
On display in the Watkinson Library through January 12, 2009 is an exhibition of original architectural drawings and other material from the Trinity College Archives related to the College’s historic 19th-century Long Walk buildings, which are considered among the finest examples in America of the High Victorian Collegiate Gothic style. Entitled “They Should Stand For Ages”: William Burges, Francis Kimball and Trinity’s Long Walk Buildings, the exhibition was planned and described by Peter J. Knapp, Special Collections Librarian and College Archivist, and celebrates the completion of an extensive 14-month project to restore and renovate the buildings.
The Long Walk exhibition is free and open to the public, and can be viewed Mondays through Fridays from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm. It can also be viewed from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm on Saturdays from November 1 through December 13, except for November 29th.
The formal opening of the exhibition will take place at a Watkinson Library Open House on October 7th at 5 pm in the Raether Center’s 1823 Room when architectural historian Darrin VonStein will lecture on the planning and construction of the Long Walk.
