Art Department students have collaborated on an installation that explores the history of the university. While enrolled in the courses of Design II (taught by Bryan Ellis), Alternative Photographic Process (taught by Leah Sobsey) and Books and Images (taught by Belinda Haikes), the students delved into the materials housed in the library’s Hodges Special Collections and University Archives. By incorporating photographs, historical objects, letters, documents and oral history, the students’ art re-imagines the history of the campus and connects it to the present day, notes Kimberly Lutz (University Libraries).
The Exhibition opening reception will be Thursday, Jan. 20, 4-5:30 p.m. in the Jackson Library Reading Room. All are invited.
The exhibition will be on display throughout the spring semester. A percentage of all sales will benefit the University Libraries.
