Scott and his party perished on the return route. Recently, studies of Scott's expedition and other explorations of the "Heroic Age" have re-emphasized the scientific contributions made by these pioneers.

Student Artists' Books Now on Display at the Art & Architecture Library

Artists' Books Spring 2012.gif

In the Winter 2012 quarter, students from Ala Ebtekar's studio course visited the Art & Architecture Library during two class sessions to view selections from the library's artists' books collection. The visits helped to inform the students' own work, providing them with examples of the artist's book form that ranged from the historic to the contemporary, the traditional to the experimental. The works on view in this new exhibition are their final projects, a set of works that includes altered books, hand-drawn pages, mixed-media boxes, and performance traces.
