artifact of the montt

Students Abigail Gutierrez-Ray, Christine Saw, and Kayla McManus-Viana in the lobby of the Paper Tricentennial Building discuss the installation of "Artifact of the Month," which features a seldom-seen item from the paper museum's extensive collection. The item on display is "space paper" — paper that was made on the space shuttle Columbia, along with the molds for the experiment. Students select, research, and write about an artifact, and are responsible for its proper installation in the lobby. The photo, taken Sept. 3, is courtesy of the Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking.
