The manuscripts of Middle Earth: UWM art history professor co-curates Marquette’s Tolkien exhibit

J.R.R. Tolkien created a spellbinding fantasy world where elves and dwarves walk among men and hobbits are the unlikeliest of heroes. The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings have captured the hearts of millions – and now those fans can see Tolkien’s work for themselves, thanks in part to UWM art historian Sarah Schaefer. Schaefer is the co-curator of the “J.R.R. Tolkien: The Art of the Manuscript” exhibit at Marquette University’s Haggerty Museum of Art. The show features more than 11,000 pages of Tolkien’s notes and manuscripts, including the manuscripts of his two most famous works.
