A new student show “One of a Kind” will be on display at the Central Reading Room in the Melville Library between November 6 and December 10, 2018.
Nobuho Nagasawa, the Art Studio Faculty Member who curated the show, described what’s on display in this way:
“In the new technological age, the role of the library has changed with the rise of the Internet, E-books, Kindles, and other means of reading. Nevertheless, books have never failed to transport new ideas, relay messages, provoke thoughts, and challenge viewpoints. In this exhibition, “One of a Kind,” I asked each student in the senior seminar class to expand their individual art practice and to create a site-responsive work that is related to the function of the library as a beacon of knowledge, and a place for exploration.”
