Opening Reception: Art & Design Collection from the CorcoranFriday, October 17
4-5:30pm
Gelman Libary 1st Floor

Join us to welcome the arrival of the Art & Design Collection from the Corcoran to Gelman Library's first floor.  Learn more about this wonderful resource for the study of photography, photojournalism, exhibition design, interior design, and art education.  Some items in this collection are not owned by any other library in the Washington area.

A special exhibit of the artists' books collection from the Corcoran, which is now being housed and cared for by Special Collections, will be available as well.   Artists’ books are works of art, sometimes published in small editions and sometimes one-of-a-kind, that are manifested in book or book-like form.  The Art & Design Collection from the Corcoran contains more than 200 artists' books focusing broadly on the theme of social justice.
