The Library loves Art! Explore your own creativity by being inspired by the books and articles about the works of the many famous and perhaps not-so-famous artists that are in our collection. We have a massive collection of books and articles on art and artists that are fun to peruse as well as help you with your studies. If you don’t know much about art and want to know what makes artists famous and what their influences are or were, the Library can help! Want to support your fellow students in their art endeavors? Visit the Library Art Gallery for a student exhibition called “Out of the Box” that is running 10/29/13 -12/12/13.
