Persistence of Vision

Online Artist Talk
Thursday Jan. 14, 5pm
Registration required – please go to:

The artist's intent with this collection of digital photographs is to imply movement through physical space over extended time. The imagery is created by moving the camera around the subject in an effort to surpass observation by ostensibly introducing a sense of examination. This exhibition explores many of the most visited man-made sites around the globe, i.e. The Eiffel Tower, Stonehenge, The Taj Mahal, The Statue of Liberty, etc.

        The Taj Mahal, Agra, India, 2020

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.
