The Art & Architecture Library is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibition, "Recent Acquisitions in American Art." The theme of the show was inspired by the Department of Art & Art History's hosting of an international conference on the changing shape of American art history. All of the featured texts were written by students and faculty in the Department of Art & Art History (with the exception of one text by our own Katie Keller!). It seems a fitting way to celebrate the department's rich contributions to the field.
The recent acquisitions include a signed copy of Andy Warhol's Exposures (complete with a doodle of a chocolate chip cookie by Warhol himself!), Larry Clark's provocative photo book Tulsa, issues of the classic mid-century design magazine Arts & Architecture, and a contemporary artist's book, Me and The, by Ed Ruscha. The exhibition will be on view until the spring.
