I am extremely thankful for the honor to be featured by a facility that was recognized with the 2004 Library of the Year Award from Thomson Gale and Library Journal. A state-of-the-art structure that is seven-story tall and houses 30 award-winning art installations!

I was a student there during its construction and its opening. I spent hours studying for my graduate classes and tutoring students – have gathered some wonderful memories along the way. Today, when I prepare for the installation, I am overwhelmed by the excitement and joy. I hope through this display, I can convey gratitude, sense of cheer to my audience and have a satisfaction of giving back.

There is no scheduled reception for the event so please feel free to drop by any day after November 1.
