experience the First Friday Art Walk at Southern Oregon University’s Hannon
Library. The library holds a special open house every first Friday of the month,
from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM. Visitors can view the art and artifact collections on
display in the university library while enjoying live music and free
refreshments. Guided tours will run every half hour, but visitors are also
welcome to explore on their own and even meet our guest artists.

temporary exhibits. Join surrealist artist Craig Honeycutt and photographer
Cornelius Matteo at this unique exhibit exploring their visions of time and
space. A new addition to the Hannon Library’s First Friday is LIVE theatrical performance.

fractal art by Martin Ball, drawings by Parsina Kirth, as well as paintings and
drawings by Sean and Britani Nelson.

Library also has a wide variety of permanent displays with something to
interest just about anyone. There is a art talknumber of paintings and prints,
including historical photos from Jackson County icon, Peter Britt. There’s an
extensive series of work from renowned artist Betty LaDuke. Kids will enjoy
meeting Swampy, the giant swamphorse
sculpture created by SOU alum Tricia Johansen, and visitors of all ages can

Musical Instruments. The Hearn
History of Printing and Writing Collection features historical books and
manuscripts from around the world, and the incredible bronzes from Meera
Censor’s Humanitarians for Justice,
