Heads of the Hydra: Trophies of Dragon Day

Green dragon on parade

Every year in 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 2018, John Hartell Gallery will host the exhibition Trophies of Dragon Day. This exhibition will showcase photographs and trophies of past Dragon Days.

Dragon Day 2018 took place on March 30.
