We have done women artists, Asian history (Feb.), Africa,
Geography , but our really favorite is the following: about 6
years ago one of our staff got a small grant for "hanging
strips" which we installed all over the library. We feature
student, staff, faculty and alumni art all year round and we are
booked well into 2001. Sometimes the art is thematic such as
artists of the Royal Chicano Air Force (for May) many of whom
are or were faculty here. Occasionally we have "traveling" exhibits
from Mexican Consolate or Smithsonian. We have had the AIDS quilts
twice.

You just can't imagine how this art spiffies up the library
walls. We have an exhibit committee and policies.
