Special Exhibits

The Built Environment
The magic in the HarryIn commemoration of the Year of the Arts, the Merrill-Cazier Library presents an exhibit celebrating USU’s rich architectural history from the first master plan in 1912 to the present. The Larry Elsner Art Foundation funded the work of senior history student Cody Patton, who curated this exhibition under the direction of University Archivist Robert Parson.

Lines of Dissent
Curated by students in Professor Paul Crumbley’s graduate English seminar, this exhibition illustrates key ways the poetry of the internationally recognized Logan native May Swenson contributes to and dissents from a female poetic tradition that extends from Emily Dickinson to the present.

Harry Potter’s World: Renaissance Science, Magic, and Medicine
The magic in the Harry Potter novels is partially based on Renaissance traditions that played an important role in the development of Western science, including alchemy, astrology, and natural philosophy. This traveling exhibition from the U.S. National Library of Medicine explores the intersection of these worlds, and the Library will have several of our own rare book items on display in the Hatch Room.

Work in Progress
A reproduction of this collage-style mural, a stunning visualization of the impact of women on society, is on exhibit on the lower level of the Library. Envisioned as a community project by Salt Lake City artists Jann Haworth and Liberty Blake, the mural represents the work of 120 Utah men and women who created the initial stencil portraits for this work. The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art organized this Year of the Arts initiative in partnership with the Library.
