Three Westminster students minoring in Museum Studies executed a special virtual exhibit for America’s National Churchill Museum in celebration of the 75th anniversary of Winston Churchill’s "Iron Curtain" speech on March 5, 2021.
When Sir Winston Churchill delivered his historic address at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, on March 5, 1946, he coined the phrase “special relationship” referring to the alliance between Great Britain and the United States. As part of its 50th anniversary celebration in 2019, America’s National Churchill Museum invited K-12 public and private school students from Mid Missouri to paint or draw the concept special relationship. Although the installation is no longer on view at the Museum, together with brief artist statements, the completed artworks – over 4,000 total – have been photographed, numbered, and documented digitally for global distribution at ancmsrp.org.
Fall 2013 saw Westminster College's first "Introduction to Museum Work" course. The students created an online exhibit for their final project. Their topic? Everyday life in Victorian Britain.
