Burials, Baths, and Beyond Exhibit Opens

Thursday, November 2 marks the opening of "Burials, Baths, and Beyond," an exhibit of photographs on loan from the University of Hartford Art School depicting archeological sites from Israel and Spain. The exhibit will be housed on the library's fourth and fifth floors for the month of November, with a sample of the works displayed in the library's Grand Corridor until Friday, November 10. The exhibit is mounted in collaboration with the Departments of Geography and Anthropology, and is displayed in coordination with a visit from Dr. Richard Freund, who will also be speaking a 7:00 pm in Phillips Hall 007 on November 2. For a more information about Dr. Freund's visit, view the University press release.

A reception will also be held to celebrate the exhibit's opening at 2:30pm on November 2, with comments from Dr. Richard Freund and Interim Director of Libraries Christopher Cox at 3pm. Refreshments will be served.

The library would like to thank Professor Harry Jol for approaching us with this opportunity, and Tom Wagener for his assistance in mounting the exhibit.

The library is also looking for new exhibits in our new space on the fourth and fifth floors, as well as the Grand Corridor. Please contact Christopher Cox if interested.
