Library Happenings: Feminism and Art

xxredux1 (2)

Here on the Chapman campus, we are lucky enough to be surrounded by art in many forms. As I have shown in previous posts, we have collections of art and memorabilia scattered throughout the library; we also have sculptures and statues and fountains throughout the campus. The Chapman University philosophy believes that art inspires us to be greater thinkers and students. The Guggenheim Art Gallery here on campus is an extension of that philosophy.

The Guggenheim provides a location right on campus for students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community to get up close and personal with featured art. Here in the library, we like to support the efforts. We currently have an exhibit “XX Redux” that is exploring the role of feminism in art and art in feminism. I created a display case with items from our collection that align with this theme.

If you ever have a chance to visit our campus, the Guggenheim Gallery should be a stop on your tour, and if you can’t visit us in person, please keep in mind that you can search and request more than just textbooks through our library catalog.

Have a great week, Brandman!
