AUB 1960s day

Yesterday saw a University wide 1960s celebration in honour of the Mister Sixties exhibition on display in The Gallery.  Some students and members of staff dressed up appropriately for the occasion and a special menu was served in the Arts Bar.

As part of the activities MoDiP joined forces with The Library and put together a small exhibition of objects, books, journals and magazines.  These artefacts were either of the time or documenting the period.

The display included the Sottsass typewriter as described in Susan's blog post.

This small capsule of time has proved to be very popular with both internal and external visitors and brings out the colour of the vibrant and stylish decade.
