Art in the Library

About Art in the Library

Born from a desire to celebrate the revitalization of Dana Porter and Davis Centre libraries, completed in 2019, Art in the Library aims to open up library spaces to showcase the creativity of our community and create welcoming and engaging spaces for our users.

All members of the University of Waterloo community are welcome to submit works of art for this rotating, juried exhibit, on display in the Davis Centre Library silent study room.

Call for submissions
