Third Floor Exhibition Area Mission Statement

The space is available to students and the CMU community who wish to exhibit work. This may include work by individuals, student collaborations, classes or student organizations. The library encourages students, faculty and staff to submit proposals for student exhibitions, including those other than fine arts. All works to be displayed should be appropriately mounted, framed, and ready for installation. Pedestals are available if necessary.​​​​​​​​​ Please see: Propose an Exhibit at right to request a show.

The 3rd Floor Exhibit Area features exhibits which provide visual and cultural enrichment for the benefit of library users and the university community. Exhibits in this area may display art, present historical and cultural subjects, or highlight topics related to academic disciplines. Traveling shows may be featured and exhibits fostering collaboration with academic colleges and departments are encouraged.

Exhibits in the 3rd Floor Exhibit Area may be documentary in nature, but may not present overtly partisan commentary or advocate or promote overtly partisan views of a group or individual on historical, political, social, or religious issues. Exhibits intended primarily to publicize university programs will also not be accepted.

The Libraries’ Art and Exhibits Committee will decide whether a proposed exhibit is in accordance with this mission.

This venue provides 60 linear feet of display surface with an 8 foot wall height and accommodates exhibits up to approximately 4 feet in depth.
