Museum Exhibits

Exhibits dominate the first and second floors of the Logan Museum. The centerpiece of the first floor is the Visible Storage “Cube” surrounded by cased exhibits that detail the history and purpose of the museum’s collections. The second floor Robert G. Shaw Gallery showcases changing exhibitions curated by museum staff and Beloit College students and faculty.

Monstrum: Embodiments of Fear

Monsters abound in horror movies but are not confined to the screen. They roam the world and realms around us. Some are terrifying and gruesome, preying on their victims. Others are guardians, aiding those that honor them. Monsters go by many names, but what characterizes them is their transgression of human categories and expectations. They are the dead come to life, the inanimate made animate, the spirits in the material world, and so much more.
Wherever there are people, monsters are not too far away.

The museum is open to Beloit College students, faculty, and staff Monday-Friday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., or before 11 a.m. by appointment. Non-campus visitors should contact museum staff for visit inquiries.

Online Exhibits

COVID-19 presented the Logan Museum with an opportunity to re-imagine how we construct and share exhibit content. Pivoting to an online format presents new learning and engagement opportunities for students, faculty, and staff and ensures exhibit content is more broadly accessible. We hope our new online exhibits inspire collaboration, dialogue, and knowledge production during and after the current pandemic.

Kuba Textiles: The Art of a Kingdom

Kuba design cloths are multi-use, geometric panels produced in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. They tell a 400-year story spanning the unification of a kingdom, the creation and collapse of a Belgian colony, and the birth of an international art market.

What Does Food Mean to You?

  • What memories do you have of food?
  • How does your identity inform what and how you eat?
  • Where does your food come from?
  • Who taught you about the food you make and eat?
  • Is your food linked to immigration and migration stories?

These are some of the questions students in Dr. Jennifer Esperanza’s Food and Culture class at Beloit College thought about as they explored food’s many meanings. In this exhibit, students share stories about food and what it means to them, their families, and those around them.

We invite you to visit the exhibit to read these stories, learn a new recipe, and think about what food means to you.
