This exhibition was the result of a project undertaken by third-year BA student, Georgia Jones, who was appointed to an arts internship with the Logie Collection in 2014. Georgia majored in Classics, French, and Media and Communication at Canterbury, and hoped to pursue a career in Journalism.
The James Logie Memorial Collection in the Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities is one of the University of Canterbury's great treasures. The Logie Collection contains some of the finest classical antiquities in New Zealand, and is available for public vewing, research and teaching. To find out more about the collection, see Teece Museum / Logie Collection webpages. To find out more about studying classics at UC, visit the Classics Department webpages.
The Arts Internships programme works jointly with businesses and community organisations to provide productive and strategic outcomes on real world projects. Interns are able to gain valuable work experience with a business or organization, and complete an academic research component related to their work experience.
Our thanks to the Kidd family, and in particular to Aileen Regan and Alison Lloyd Davies, for making this project possible through their generous donation of the DA Kidd Collection.
