7:00 am - 12:00 am    Green Cat Press Exhibition

Exhibit / Merril-Cazier Library

A selection of broadsides by the Green Cat Press, from the Merrill-Cazier Library's Special Collections, is on display in the Library's Atrium. Each broadside combines a literary work, such as a poem or essay, with imagery. These fine prints, many resulting from direct collaboration with well-known authors, have themes ranging from cats and nature to the metaphysical. The exhibition may be viewed during regular library hours until early September.

Arts & Entertainment / Caine College of the Arts

This selection of artwork from the permanent collection embraces a diverse range of forms and showcases work by important women artists. Rather than representing a certain artistic style or focusing on specific subjects depicted by women, this exhibition features a variety of styles and subjects. Included are representations of the female form, critiques of the objectification of the female body, and experiments with total abstraction. Highlights include posters by the Guerilla Girls, an installation piece by Ilene Segalove, photography from the second wave of feminism and minimalist abstraction.
