From the collection of Alan Lupack and Barbara Tepa Lupack, Visualizing Camelot is an exhibition of more than 350 items, and confirms the ongoing appeal of the Arthurian legends, especially in England and America.

The exhibition reveals the diverse ways that the stories of Camelot have been imagined and visualized, both in high culture (paintings, drawings, illustrated books) and in popular culture (film, toys, games, comic books, cartoons, dishware, product names, business logos, etc.).

Alan Lupack, a noted Arthurian scholar and former director of the Robbins Library at the University of Rochester, is author or editor of numerous Arthurian studies, including  Arthur, The Greatest King;  Arthurian Drama;  Modern Arthurian Literature;  New Directions in Arthurian Studies; and The Oxford Guide to Arthurian Literature and Legend. 

Barbara Tepa Lupack, former academic dean at SUNY and New York State Public Scholar, is author or editor of more than twenty-five books, including  The Girl’s King Arthur,  King Arthur’s Crown,  Adapting the Arthurian Legends for Children,  and the recently published The Othering of Women in Silent Film. The Lupacks have lectured and published widely on Arthurian topics. Together, they created The Camelot Project, a popular database of texts, images, and information about the Arthurian legends, and coauthored studies such as Arthurian Literature by Women, Illustrating Camelot, and the award-winning King Arthur in America.  

The exhibition is free and open to all during the hours for each space within Rush Rhees Library March 7–December 2. A wide array of programming relating to the exhibition is planned for the whole of 2024.
