Scholarship works of 77 Baylor University faculty and staff members will be highlighted at the ninth annual "Creations @ Baylor: Libraries Spotlight Scholarship and the Arts." The exhibit will be on display in the Allbritton Foyer of Moody Memorial Library from March 1 through April 22.

A reception honoring participants will run from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 2, in the Moody Library foyer. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.

In addition to books and journal articles, exhibit items this year include photographs, CDs, a collection guide, a website, lighting and graphic design and varied art media such as ceramic sculpture, egg tempera and fiber.

"This year's event also will include an exhibit highlighting contributions to the library of the late Dr. A.J. Conyers, a faithful contributor to the Creations @ Baylor showcase," said Carol Schuetz, the exhibit chair.

In an effort to highlight all the scholarship created at Baylor, two years ago the libraries' committee changed the title of the exhibit from "Baylor Authors and Artists at Work" to "Creations @ Baylor." Materials in the exhibit were published or exhibited from March 2004 through February 2005.

For more information, contact Schuetz at 710- 4410 or the reception chair Beth Tice at 710- 3679 or go to http://www.baylor.edu/librarygifts/index.php?id=26239 to find a list of participants and their featured works.
