“Books as muse” is the theme of the new exhibit at Special Collections & Archives featuring works from Tara Cooper’s FINE 230 printmaking class. Far from the world of historical essays, the print works on display were inspired by items in our holdings and reflect the diverse nature of our collections. The prints run the gamut from fairy tales and dance tracts to extinct birds and trans zines, and everything in-between. While the exhibit will be on display until March 2018, why not take a break from day dreaming about your winter vacation and come see it now?
For this year’s celebration of Science Literacy Week visit the display cases in the Davis Library to see our exhibit of holdings from Special Collections & Archives of works that have inspired the careers, passions, and inventive nature of scientists.
Following the success of The New Feminists, Special Collections & Archives is excited to announce the unveiling of our second Fine Arts exhibit: The Wild And The Tamed. Professor Tara Cooper writes that the “exhibition explores humanity’s relationship with nature—the wild and the tamed.”
