Leland student helps curate exhibit for AU
Keely Haag of Leland is one of 10 students who helped curate “Unraveling Revelations: Decoding the Prophetic Charts,” an award-winning exhibit for Aurora University’s Schingoethe Center.
The exhibit was curated by students in the Aurora University spring 2012 MST2200 Museum Exhibitions course, and recently received an Award of Excellence in Exhibitions from the Illinois Association of Museums.
In the early 19th century, a man named William Miller came to the conclusion that the Second Coming of Jesus Christ was imminent and would take place in 1843. On display are eight of the 36 charts from the Aurora University Jenks Memorial Collection of Adventual Materials. The charts were used as visual aids at church services and camp meetings to teach out the prophecies, which Miller believed were about to come to fruition.
