Heads of the Hydra: Trophies of Dragon Day


Every year in mid-March, in a tradition that goes back more than 100 years, an enormous dragon created by first-year architecture students parades across campus. Accompanied by AAP students in outrageous costumes, the dragon lumbers to the Arts Quad where it does battle with a phoenix created by rival engineering students. This rite of spring is one of Cornell's best-known traditions.

In honor of Reunion 2017, John Hartell Gallery will host the exhibition Heads of the Hydra: Trophies of Dragon Day. This exhibition will showcase photographs, Dragon Day T-shirts, and trophies of past Dragon Days.

Dragon Day 2017 took place on March 31. Video of the parade can be watched on YouTube.
