This is the second phase of a course that will generate a Focus Gallery exhibition opening in February 2011 and an accompanying publication.  Students will be involved in planning and laying out the exhibition, selecting cards and supporting materials for inclusion, writing texts and captions, and crafting a 300-illustration "Field Guide to Christmas Cards in America" (working title) that will explore and expand on exhibition themes.  Participation in the first half of this course beneficial but not required. 3 credits.
