Library Exhibits and Art Gallery

The Barber Library hosts rotating art exhibits through out the academic year in the Rotunda Gallery. The expansive Rotunda area within the main lobby of the library has an abundance of natural light and architectural features that creates a commanding area for the visual arts. The gallery displays the creative talents of students, faculty and regional artists with the purpose of provoking artistic interpretation in a learning environment. Find out more about showing your art in the  Rotunda Gallery.

The Lexicon of Sustainability


February 6  through March 19 

The Lexicon of Sustainability is based on a simple premise: people can’t be expected to live more sustainable lives if they don’t even know the most basic terms and principles that define sustainability. Words are the building blocks for new ideas. They have the power to activate change and transform societies. By illuminating positive, solution-oriented words and concepts of sustainable agriculture, the Lexicon of Sustainability encourages us to consider the impact of your food choices.
