The Health Sciences and Human Services Library’s (HS/HSL) upcoming exhibit, 21 Years of Art at the HS/HSL, will showcase selected art works from past exhibits through Feb. 22.
To celebrate, join us on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., in the first-floor Frieda O. Weise Gallery for a reception and brief overview of the past 21 years of art at the HS/HSL.
Throughout the past 21 years, art exhibits of paintings, sculpture, photography, and more have graced the walls and spaces of the HS/HSL, showcasing creativity and artistic expression. Works by University staff and students, as well as other artists, have been featured.
Additionally, traveling exhibits from various organizations have informed us on a wide variety of health-related topics and social issues. The sponsoring organizations have ranged from medical institutions and groups to national museums and crisis centers. Former HS/HSL executive director Frieda Weise, for whom the gallery is named, envisioned the library as a community space where people could gather surrounded by more than books and computers, a place that invites the diverse University community to come together. What better way to do so than through the arts?
