Preservation Week: April 22-28, 2012
During Preservation Week libraries all over the country present events, activities, and resources that highlight what we can do, individually and together, to preserve our personal and shared collections.
Film Screening and Discussion: Quetzalcoatl

Arthur M. Loew Auditorium

In 2010, Dartmouth College Library was awarded a grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation to preserve the twentytwo-minute film Quetzalcoatl (1961). The film interprets Orozco's mural The Epic of American Civilization with commentary and a commissioned music score. It was written, produced, and directed by Robert Canton, Dartmouth Class of 1958. This will be the film's first public debut since its restoration. Co-sponsored by Hood Museum of Art and Dartmouth College Library in conjunction with Preservation Week.
