New Murals in Scott Library

Each year the Faculty of Fine Arts invites members of the campus to consider acquiring art for their public spaces through the site-specific mural competition. Once again the Libraries provided a small number of spaces for which students could propose a piece of art. In the Spring, the winners for the Site Specific Art Contest were chosen by a panel of judges. Three murals are now installed:

  1. I guess it’s too late to have a lip on the Circulation Desk to cover up the keyboards, stamps, papers, etc.? Check out the picture above…lots of clutter…it distracts from the art.
