Baylor Libraries Spotlight Scholarship

Jan. 22, 2004

The eighth exhibit spotlighting scholarship and the arts at Baylor University will be presented by the BU Libraries March 2 through April 30 in the Allbritton Foyer of Moody Memorial Library.

Formerly called 'Baylor Authors and Artists at Work,' the exhibit is now titled 'Creations @ Baylor: Libraries Spotlight Scholarship and the Arts.' It was expanded in 2002 to include all faculty and staff works considered 'scholarly' such as books, chapters, journal articles, artwork that has been exhibited in a juried show, and music compositions or recordings. These materials must have been published or exhibited from October 2002 through February 2004. A reception honoring the exhibitors will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. Thursday, March 4, in the foyer.

Submission forms for entering the exhibit may be obtained calling Beth Tice, exhibit coordinator, at ext. 3679 or e-mailing her.

Although the exhibit may not display every entry, the committee is looking at new ways to display the varied formats, said Tice. Last year's show included include 37 books, 22 journal articles, fabric art, photographs, mixed media, sculpture, a costume rendering, and other forms of scholarly work. Fifty-six faculty or staff members were highlighted in the 2002 exhibit.

Usually held in the fall, the exhibit was moved to the spring semester since the libraries were hosting the 'Frankenstein' traveling exhibit.

More information may be obtained from Tice or Carol Schuetz, exhibit chair, ext. 4410. Forms and exhibit items may be taken to Tice on the garden level of Moody Library, Schuetz in Jones Library reference, or to the main circulation desk.
