Robert C. Larson ’56 Art in the Library Program

4D: Photography, Sculpture
April 7 – August 31, 2014

Naum Gabo 3d Photographs

Beyond simply documenting a sculpture, a photograph can change how we see it, interpret it, and respond to it. In these published photographs, the art of the sculptor and the art of the photographer conspire to produce an additional – perhaps 4th? – dimension.

Insect & Bird Studies
Field Drawing, Spring 2014
June 5 - August 31, 2014

These ink and watercolor drawings were made by students in Dan Bruggeman’s field drawing class this term. The students examined specimens from the Biology Department and recorded the anatomy, color and detail of these insects and birds with great care. The variety of the resulting images reflects the numerous artistic choices required, even in an objective scientific drawing.

The History & Practice of Printing

June 5 – August 31, 2014

Throughout the spring term the students in Professor Paas’ course have studied the various developments in printing technology during the past several centuries.  At the same time, they have learned firsthand how to bind books and to make woodcuts, engravings, and etchings.  The final project in the course requires each student to put theory into practice and to produce and bind a book which he or she has designed and illustrated.  On display here are the fruits of their ambitious labors.
