Binghamton University students from Professor Pamela Smart’s Museums and the Art of Exhibition class along with the Binghamton University Art Museum present three exhibitions for Spring 2018. "Romanticized Recollections: Aesthetics of Corrupted Childhood" explores how the power of images, objects, and words evoke memory and emotions by creating nostalgia: an idealized identification with familiar places. "Collectors as Donors: Understanding the Landscapes of Collecting" investigates collecting as an act of giving rather than keeping. In the works we selected from donors’ collections we explore the relationship between color, space, and line. "Peter Guttman: Collection as a Self Portrait" explores the concept of the personal collection as an embodiment of the collector. Using objects from Peter Guttman’s collection, we demonstrate how these objects develop new meaning together in the form of an extended, enduring self.

Johnson City Health Sciences Campus Vs Koffman Southern Tier Incubator: Demographic and Housing Analysis and Revitalization’s Effect on Gentrification and Displacement
Time:
2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Location:
Geography Department
Description:
This analysis will compare the demographic and economic trends between the Binghamton University Health Sciences Campus in Johnson City study area and the Koffman Southern Tier Incubator’s study area. Our areas of focus include key demographics such as total population, median household incomes, educational attainment levels, and housing tenures of the two study areas. This analysis will include both quantitative data collected using U.S. Census and other data agglomeration sources and qualitative data. The qualitative data will be a comparative analysis of interviews held by individual local community leaders within the two trade areas, namely religious leaders. The goal of this analysis is to examine the process of economic revitalization as it relates to gentrification and displacement, and to better understand the determining factors behind displacement by studying this specific case study of Johnson City and Binghamton. We will examine overarching theories of gentrification that have been widely agreed upon through research studies and determine if these theories apply to the study areas. By studying these areas, the data should indicate that as the student population increases in downtown Binghamton so will renter population. We expect this to lead to an increase in rent and potential displacement of former occupants.
