Shattered

One item in the student-curated exhibition of Yale’s collection of American glass at the Art Gallery is not like the others: it’s in pieces. In a section of the exhibit about politics and culture, the curators included the fragments of a window from the dining hall of what was once Calhoun College. The window, which depicted enslaved people picking cotton, was broken in protest by a dining hall worker in 2016.
