Art in the Library

For the past two years, University of Waterloo Library has been making dramatic changes to the Davis Centre and Dana Porter libraries. Increasing and repurposing spaces to create a new Learning lab, study rooms, lounge spaces and a reflection room. With these changes to Library space comes the desire to open up Library space to showcase the creativity of our community.

Transforming spaces

The Library invites the University of Waterloo community to submit works on the theme of Transforming spaces. Accepted works will be on display in the Davis Centre Library silent study room from January to August 2019, and will be featured on our website, social media pages and other publications.


The theme “Transforming spaces” can be interpreted in any medium, although the work must be ready to hang. To apply, artists must complete the submission form, including one high-resolution image of the work.


Submission deadline: Monday, January 7, 2019

Jurying: Wednesday, January 9, 2019

Artists notified: Thursday, January 10, 2019
