Breaking Out of the Glass Case: Collaborative Exhibitions in Library Spaces
October 1, 11am Pacific – 12pm Mountain – 1pm Central – 2pm Eastern
Libraries can be powerful sites for collaboration with artists and art institutions. A wide range of visitors pass though our spaces every day, providing ample opportunities to connect people, art, and information. Our guest moderators – an artist/curator and a librarian – will discuss the ways in which they have created such interactions within their respective communities. Looking at case studies from public and academic libraries, this chat will offer ideas and insights to all who are interested in bringing art into the library.
Discussion Leaders: Lorna Brown, artist and independent curator; Laura Graveline, Visual Arts Librarian, Dartmouth College
ARLIS/NA Education Subcommittee contacts: Heather Koopmans (firstname.lastname@example.org) & Adrienne Lai (email@example.com)
