Big Art Day


As part of the 2014 Big Art Day celebration, the library is proud to host student exhibits.  According to the Texas Art Education Association (TAEA), 

"Big Art Day is an art happening to raise awareness of art education and art as a creative force in our communities on a BIG statewide scale. It is an attempt ... to engage all art educators, their students and communities in a single day art event."  

To this end, Dragon Artists have displayed their artwork in the library windows, showcased some of the library's art books, reproduced portraits of famous artists, and used faculty-designs to create hand mandalas. They're even having a contest where students can enter to win a Starbuck's gift card by identifying famous works of art.

So, as you go about your day, embrace Picasso's dictum and take a moment to visit the library, the 100 building student center, the 1100 concourse, and the cafeteria in order to enjoy the purpose of art - washing the dust of daily life off your soul.
