Campus Event Calendar
On April 5,
2013, experience the First Friday Art Walk at Southern Oregon University’s Hannon
Library. The library will hold a special open house every first Friday, 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.
the library’s featured exhibit is “Intuition”, a collection of watercolor
paintings by Nina Reynolds. This show is an exploration of technique and
inspiration when working with watercolor. Nina Reynolds will be available at
the art walk until 7:00 p.m. to discuss her work.
the library had art? Hannon Library actually has a wide variety of exhibits
with something to interest just about anyone. There is a number of paintings
and prints on display, as well as an exhibit of 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 alumna Tricia
Johansen, and visitors of all ages can appreciate the Schuman Collection of 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, Nonviolence and Peace Collection shouldn’t be missed. And
let’s not forget the library’s most recent addition, the We Are Here sculpture, a signature piece of local culture.
Admission is free and open
to the public. For additional information, contact Library Administration at
