    An intimate exhibition of haunting photographs taken at Homewood Museum by Lydia Alcock, a junior majoring in psychology with a minor in the Program in Museums and Society, is inspired by the human history of Homewood Museum, built in 1801 as the country home of Charles and Harriet Carroll. By connecting her ghostly images to excerpts from Harriet’s poetry, Alcock invites visitors to see themselves as a continuum of individuals who have walked Homewood’s halls. Alcock is a psychology major with a minor in the Program in Museums and Society in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. She has worked at Homewood Museum since 2009 and in 2010 held the museum’s Pinkard-Bolton curatorial internship.
