    In this same spirit, our students brought together the College’s own wonders of nature and artifice for The Gettysburg Cabinet. Each student carried out research on an object or set of objects of their choice, and together they have presented highlights of their work in this catalog. Bridging the gap between the Renaissance and our own time was quite a challenge, but the students rose to the occasion marvelously. This show was curated by:
    Danielle Berardinelli, Rebecca Deffler, Madison Desmond, Jill Duranko, Peter Flood, Emily Francisco, Devin Garnick, Joshua Griffiths, Lauren Kauffman, Rose Kell, Sara Ketelsen, Marissa Mellan, Dina Mohamed-Aly, Joanna Myers, Sean Pethybridge, Joshua Poorman, Molly Reynolds and Shane Swink.

    This endeavor was made possible by the generosity and support of many people across campus and beyond. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to Shannon Egan, Carolyn Sautter and our outstanding course Peer Learning Associate, Molly Reynolds, for their hard work over the past year. Items were generously loaned to the exhibition from István Urcuyo, Kazuo Hiraizumi, John Winkelmann, Sefanie Sobelle, Jack Ryan and two students in the class, Sara Ketelsen and Lauren Kauffman, as well as the History Department, Health Sciences Department, Biology Department, Physics Department, Special Collections and Musselman Library, the Schmucker Art Gallery, Gettysburg College and the teachers at the Stonewall Jackson High School, VA. We would like to gratefully acknowledge funding from the Johnson Center for Creative Teaching and Learning, Steve Gimbel and the National Science Foundation, the Schmucker Art Gallery, the Biology Department, the Art and Art History Department, and the Library of Gettysburg College. Nate Fitch and Molly Reynolds deserve credit for the photography in this catalog. We were fortunate to have a recreation of a 17-century Chamber of Wonders at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore for inspiration, and we would like to thank John Shields and Joaneath Spicer for their enthusiasm and guidance.

    Wonders of nature and artifice are brought together in this most unusual exhibition, The Gettysburg Cabinet. Students have developed this special show as part of a new course team-taught by professors from Biology and Art History, Kay Etheridge and Felicia Else. This exhibition recreates the Curiosity Cabinets and Chambers of Wonders from the days of the Renaissance but with items from Gettysburg College's own rich and diverse holding, as well as loans from faculty such as Kazuo Hiraizumi, Istvan Urcuyo and Jack Ryan, The Gettysburg Cabinet reveals the interdisciplinary nature of knowledge, reflecting a time when art and science intermingled.
    The exhibition was supported in part by the Johnson Center for Creative Teaching and Learning and the Schmucker Art Gallery, Gettysburg College. Special thanks to Shannon Egan, Gallery Directory, and Carolyn Sautter, Special Collections, for their tremendous help with mounting this exhibition.
