To provide a venue for presenting visual and textual information and performances which expose students and staff to topics and experiences that augment the classroom curriculum.
The Library provides several spaces within the Hamersly Library for the purpose of gallery exhibits and performances, including:
These exhibit spaces provide WOU faculty and students an avenue to showcase their skills and talents. They provide an extension of the classroom for WOU faculty; the library has hosted several exhibits curated by faculty and students on topics/issues that they have been studying. Finally, the exhibits program provides a way for the library to “extend” its resources – to find cultural and artistic information from other individuals or areas outside the university and to bring it to the campus.
Hamersly Library Exhibits coordinates all exhibits with the Cannon Gallery of Art. For information regarding future schedules and open dates, please email the Cannon Gallery Director, Paula Booth, via email or at 503-838-8607
