Baber Room Mission Statement

  

The Baber Room provides students, faculty, staff and community members a place to experience thought-provoking artworks as well as a place to read and study. Towards that end, exhibitions of individuals and groups as well as curated projects of professional artists are on rotating display throughout the academic semesters. Library related items outside of the fine arts are also considered for display at the discretion of the Library Art Committee. The Baber Room also provides a platform for student enrichment, as well as alumni community outreach through educational programming such as artist lectures and gallery talks. The library encourages proposals for exhibitions, exhibits traveling shows and develops exhibitions.
